  • Moving in with my sister

    I'm 14 and I live with my dad in the basement of his sisters house. My mom died when when I was 4. I don't want to live with my dad, I haven't want ed to live with him since i was around ten years old. I have a sister, age 24, she is married, has a house and an extra bedroom. My question is, is it possible for me to go live with my sister?

    Thank you for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are having a hard time at home. It must be hard living in an environment where you are not happy. Since you are a minor if you were to just leave without your dad’s permission they could report you as a runaway. Also whoever you live with could risk being charged with harboring a runaway. It may be worth it to try and talk to your dad or your sister about coming to some type of compromise. It also could be helpful to seek some type of therapy or talk with friends, a school counselor in the meantime while you are still in the environment. Sometimes talking to someone about what is going on can be a relief until you can actually get out of the situation. You can also contact NAMI if you find yourself in a stressful situation or you are having rough day by calling 1800-950-NAMI. You can contact us as well at 1800-RUNAWAY. We are 24/7, confidential and here to help! Best of luck!

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
