    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.

    Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We are sorry to hear that you are so unhappy at your dad’s house that you feel like you have to leave. If you haven’t already, you might want to reach out to your aunt and talk to her about the possibility of living with her. Unfortunately, as a 15 year old, your guardian has the legal authority to decide where you are allowed to live so you may need their permission to move out. We would be happy to talk more about what is going on in your situation and what other options you might have. Please call us on our 24/7 hotline 1-800-786-2929 or chat us at 1800runaway.org.

    Take care,
    NRS

    Thank you for reaching out to us. It must be hard to live in such a toxic environment like that. It can be very confusing to love your parent but not like their behavior. It seems like you are ready to leave but just want to make sure you are doing it legally.
    Since you are 15, there is a chance if you runaway and your father files a runaway report they could try and return you to your dad because he is your legal guardian. Also if the police find where you at your friend’s place he could be charged for harboring a runaway.
    Another option could be contacting Child Protective Services and talking to them about your father’s substance abuse usage especially if you it’s unsafe being in the household or that he is neglecting his responsibilities. Child Protective Services would then intervene and you could mention other living options.
    If you have any more questions or want to discuss more options please feel free to contact us via email, or chat with us anytime at 1800runaway.org or call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. We’re here 24/7, and we are ready to listen and help however we can.

    I'm 14 and I just dont feel like my entire family in the house loves me and consider me one of their own. I just feel like a complete stranger at all times. They won't let me talk to my friends that I've had since I was in preschool. I get hit all the time. My mum keeps cussing me out for no reason. My little sister does a lot of things that in the end I get blamed for. In my eyes that isn't fair. They've put me in a school that I hate with a passion. I've tried talking with them about it multiple times and they just don't seem to give a ********. My friend told me to stay over at his place. And I've tried to leave without them knowing resulting in a failure. I've had suicidal thoughts because of them. I don't want this life. I'm done.

    Hi, and thanks for reaching out to NRS, we’re here to listen and to help.

    It sounds like you’re in a tough situation and that you no longer feel like home is the right environment for your well-being. We’re sorry to hear that, everyone should be able to have a place where they can feel supported and at ease.

    If you’re age 15, that’s under the legal age of majority for any state out there, but there may still be some options available to you, that a legal expert could help you to explore. We’re not legal experts, but we can help you get in touch with one in your area who could help you know your legal rights as a minor.

    If you do decide to leave, it can definitely be helpful to plan ahead so you can stay safe once you leave. For example, having a plan of where you can go, and ideas of how you might support your basic needs – at a relative’s house, or a friend’s house, or even a youth homeless shelter – we can put you in touch with resources in your area. You can also have this number handy, as well as National Safe Place at https://www.nationalsafeplace.org/ With the latter, you can use their TXT 4 HELP by texting the world “safe” and your current location (address, city, state) to 4HELP (44357) for immediate help to find a safe place to stay in a crisis.

    You mentioned feeling even more depressed than before – that must be hard. We hope that you are have been able to get help or talk to a medical professional about how you’re feeling. If not, we may be able to connect you with someone to talk to about how you’re feeling, or you could contact someplace like the National Alliance on Mental Illiness (NAMI) if you feel like it’s more than just feeling down.

    Those are a few options that may be available to you. If you’d like to explore more options together, please don’t hesitate to contact us 24/7 at 1-800-RUNAWAY or on our chatline at 1800runaway.org and we’d be happy to discuss further.

    We hope this information has been helpful to you. Best of luck to you and we hope to hear back from you soon.

    Hello There,
    Thank you for contacting The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a really tough time right now. It is hard when your parent marries someone new and you feel like they change everything. One option you could consider is to try and talk to your mother alone about how you feel and what is going on. Another option could be to talk with a trusted adult or therapist about what is going on.
    You mentioned wanting to live with your uncle. We are not legal experts but do have general information on the laws. If you were to leave home without permission your mother could file a runaway report. If the police were to find you they most likely would bring you back home. You could consider emancipation which would grant you adult rights before turning 18. To learn more about the emancipation process you can call your local court house and ask them about the process. You can also call us at any time and we can provide you with legal resources.
    If you have any other questions or would like to explore options more please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. Best of luck!

    I am 15 and once my mom got married to her boyfriend 3 years ago she changed she treats me like crap she literally doesn't trust me with anything I have no freedom she doesn't trust me to go out with my friends or she don't trust me to go to my boyfriends house. its so annoying she use to trust me and never asked questions to make me look bad but now she does. She always kisses his ass and it really get me so mad. He makes me look bad in front of my mom all the time it and it gets to me, she doesn't act like my mom any more she always wants to fight and argue with me she always tries to find a reason to be mad at me like what. I'm so tired of this I want to move in with my uncle which is my moms brother but I do not think she would let me. Is it possible to move out without her permission?

    Hi, thank you for reaching out to us. We are glad that you did. It sounds like your home is a very stressful situation. Being scared at home and your mom hitting you and being very aggressive is a hard thing to deal with. It sounds like you do a lot of the work at home and your mom doesn’t think that that’s good enough. You don’t deserve to be treated this way and we are here to listen and here to help.
    We are glad that you are staying at your mate’s house – that you have a supportive friend that is there when you need them. It is understandable that you don’t want to go back home and we want to help you figure out what your options are. Reporting to your state’s child protective services may be one of your options, but your brother would be included in the investigation. You can talk it over with Child Help at 1-800-422-4453 without giving any identifying information. Their website is childhelp.org
    We hear you when you say that you’ve had enough of life, but please hear this: your life is not always going to be this way. You will have control of your own life, and dreams, and will have the ability to make your own decisions.
    You can also reach out to us via our phone hotline at 1-800-runaway (1-800-786-2929) or our live chat service available at 1800runaway.org By talking and listening to you, we can help you identify the options you have.
    We hope to hear from you soon.
    Sincerely, NRS
