    Hey there, Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like things are really challenging at home. It can be difficult for parents to give their children responsibility and trust. You don’t deserve to be yelled at. Maybe you could try talking with them about the best way you communicate with you. If you would like help with that, we offer a conference call service. It could help having a mediator. You can call in at 1-800-786-2929. You mentioned you are scared to be at your house. It could help to come up with a safety plan. For example, when you aren’t feeling safe you could go to a trusted neighbors house. Or if that isn’t available you could go to a room in your house that you can lock to stay safe. Again, we want to thank you for reaching out. That is a brave first step to getting help. If you want to talk about any of the options mentioned or just talk more about your situation we are available 24/7. You can call or chat (1800runaway.org). We are here to listen, here to help. Good Luck!
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.

        Thanks for reaching out to us. It takes a lot of courage to ask for help and we are glad you did. It sounds like you are in a very stressful situation with your Dad. We totally understand that running away is an option and that you have some concerns. We are not legal experts and the details on emancipation are different in every state-but in general most states want you to be closer to 18, have a job and show that you can support yourself while you finish school. A lot of states require parental consent as part of the process. So, while that might not be the best option for you right now, we are happy to explore all of your possible options with you.

        You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. You may also be able to report any mistreatment to child protective services. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. They can tell you more about how CPS could respond to your situation and help you make a report if you decide that's something you want to pursue.

        You can contact us anytime 24:7 on our website for a chat or on our crisis hotline number at 1 (800) RUNAWAY. Both are completely confidential. We would like to help you develop a plan with immediate steps you can take that will make your situation more manageable and help get you into an overall better situation. We are a non-directive agency so that means we are going to help you explore all your options and help you develop a safe plan that feels right for you. We hope to hear from you soon. Good luck!

      i'm 15 about to turn 16 in 2 months. my family is so chaotic and i don't wanna live with my parents anymore. all my dad does is yell about everything. if the dishes aren't done he throws them away. he also threatens to send us off every time he gets mad. one day i was gone and he told me and my other siblings not to come home and locked the doors so i couldn't get in because i got in an argument with his girlfriend. he treats her better than his own children and will choose her over us any day. he doesn't want me to live here but every time i bring up wanting to leave he gets mad. i have a bathroom in my room so i could be using the bathroom and he'll bang on my bedroom door cussing until i answer. this stuff happens almost everyday and i just don't wanna deal with it anymore. all i want is peace and quiet but i can't get that. i've tried talking about stuff with him but he just gets mad and starts yelling when we talk about it. also when i wash my clothes he throws them in the floor if i don't take them out of the washer in time.
