    I’m 15 and I want to leave my mom

    one day I asked my mom if I could go with my friends and she said yes I spent the night and now ever since she treats me like a dog she won’t let me go and she acts as if I will do anything she says I tell her all the time I’m gonna leave if she doesn’t stop disrepecting me and treating me like a dog but she does not listen so I think I might run away!!

    I’m 15 almost 16 My parents are older people but they don’t make time to talk. I’ve had something I wanted to talk to them about but neither of them will talk to me. I get yelled at for doing something wrong and not like the bad things of wrong like forgetting to do something or something around there. I don’t have much freedom like my sister and I hardly feel loved. I know they love will I think so but I definitely don’t feel loved. Also I feel worthless and unwanted I’ve been off and on with thoughts of death but my man thought is runaway. I don’t know what I should do.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out to NRS. Abuse of any kind is never okay, and your mom should not be physically harming you. You deserve to live somewhere safe, so it is great to hear you have grandma so close by.

    Generally speaking, if you are under the age of 18 then your mom can decide where you live. Your mom could report you as a runaway, but this would only mean that police would return you to her. You would not get into any legal trouble.

    You mentioned that your mom is physically abusive and you do have the right to report this. Reporting would get a social worker involved and it might mean that you would get to stay with your grandma. This can be a scary decision to make and you do not have to go through this alone. You can contact the national child abuse at 800-422-4453 or go to www.childhelphotline for more support and help with this.

    We truly want to be a support for you while you navigate this difficult situation. Do not hesitate to reach out anytime by phone (800-786-2929) or use our online chat services.

    Take care,
    NRS

    Hello,
    Thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

    We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. We would like to be of assistance to you if we can. It is times like these that would be nice to have a listening ear. It is also important that you remember to exercise self- care. You showed some by reaching out to NRS. Good for you. Sometimes talking about a situation might help to bring about options to help bring about change. It sounds like your mom was receptive to you when told about your depression. Perhaps you might consider having more communication with her and your dad where you can express how you are feeling to them. Another way to do this might be by considering counseling. You never deserve to be abused and please note that it is not your fault for how your stepfather beaves towards you. You are very brave for reaching out today. We understand that things are becoming quite challenging for you emotionally. If you are feeling depressed or at risk contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255 www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org

    Im 15 and I live with my mom on the week and go to my dads most weekends. But when I’m at my mom all I feel is depressed. My moms great and she tries hard but her punishments are harsh (not physically) and I get no freedom. She took away football and wrestling and I live wrestling so much and she knows that. My stepdad is and has always been emotionally abusive and used to be physically really bad but not anymore. I’m not dumb enough to up and run away but I need to get out of this house longer than a weekend. I can’t deal with it anymore. Like I said I love my mom with all my heart and I appreciate so much she tries her best but I can’t deal with it here. My stepdad hasn’t had a job in years he just sits there all day all week doing hardly anything even when my mom lost her job. He shouldn’t be with him for so many reasons but she doesn’t understand. My mom understands my depression we only talked about it once and she used to be like that too. But I can’t talk to her about things. We don’t have a good relationship like we used to. I just want out. My depression is getting worse. I can’t deal with all this

    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It can be frustrating to constantly hear shouting and arguments and does not seem like a good environment for your mental health.
    We want you to know that your life is important and you are valuable. There is always someone willing to listen and willing to help. If you are ever feeling suicidal or just need someone to talk to you can always contact The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at: 1800-273-8255. And it is great that you have reached out to your school you could try speaking to them again and let them know nothing has changed. Also another option to consider is to see if you could get permission to stay with a family member or friend away from the shouting.
    We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore more options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and provide support. We wish you the best of luck!

    I’m 15, I know that seems young

    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS).

    From everything that you have been going through at home with your parent’s it took a lot of courage for you to reach out. We appreciate you sharing your feelings about the situation. Well done. It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now and you mentioned being harmed and also harming yourself. We’re sorry you’re going through this. 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 seek emergency assistance immediately.

    Again you do not deserve to be abused physically, emotionally etc.
    It is not your fault that this is happening. You cannot control hat others choose to do.
    Seeking help is an option available to you.

    To report any abusive treatment there is Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. It may also be a good place to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.

    If you are not in the U.S. you can use this link to find a youth helpline in or around your country: http://www.childhelplineinternationa...where-we-work/
    We hope that by reaching out to a local resource, you are able to get the support you need from an organization that understands the laws and circumstances that affect youth in your country.



    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. You are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. We are limited as to how we can help in this type of forum.

    If you would like to talk more in detail please call 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or chat soon through our website www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button) if you are unable to call in.

    Be safe,
    NRS

    I’m 15, I know that seems young and it is but it’s an age I have to live with. My parents hurt me, they leave bruises and have caused me to cut myself. I was blind to the reason before but I recently figured out why I was cutting, it was because of them. I was so blind for so long, I couldn’t see the manipulation. I always thought “every parent does this” or “It’s just how they grew up” to cover up for the fact that they would physically abuse me. This isn’t the first time I’m running away, I’ve done it before but even then it was only for a day. I never had the guts to go on for longer, as much as I know my parents hurt me I still love them, and I’m aware I love them because of my mother’s manipulative tactics or my father’s controlling behavior. He would cover up punching me in my bed with “I woke so hard to raise you some money” and I’m sad to say it always worked. But enough it enough, I know what a human deserves and it’s not this. My father took everything from me, I’m now living in a third world country from a first world because of him, I’ve lost all my companions, I’ve lost my home, and he took away my only family from me... My friend and I were planning on buying me a plane ticket and getting back to my old country. He’s given me a place to live and a new opportunity. The only issue now is finding where all my important documents are kept in my mother’s home and finding out a way to get to the airport safely, these roads that I live in now in this third world country are not safe....

    Hey I am 15 and I am ready to leave my parents because they continue to blame their crap on me and they get mad because I spend too much time out when I hardly spend any time with anybody. I don’t understand how my stepmom which isn’t even related to me continues to make the rules for some reason and she acts like she can boss me around I am sick of it and I want to leave.
