  • Advice for a 14 year old

    My parents only care about me when my grades are high. If my grades are low, they scold me, threaten to hit me and go through unreasonable things such as making me print out my homework and them handing it in for me. Not only that, but they expect my teachers to change grades the moment something is due. Theyve been yelling at me a lot and wouldnt even let me cry. I want to get away from them for a day. Thats all I ever want, but i dont have anywhere to go and im only 14. Im also scared of this affecting my future.

      So im like super pissed right now at my step dad. So Im 15 dont have a phone, cant go out and im not allowed to have a gradr atb. And all because of my stepdad. Yesterday i went to a school football game for a footage project and he didnt believe me. I went either ways btw but hes pissed at me. Hes super sexists too. He tells me since im a girl i have to only think about cooking and cleaning. He is constantly calling names and sometimes i feel like running away. But i have no where to go. What do i do at times when im just super over the top mad at him? Like i have a pretty good life but its never the same since im not his real daughter i just want a norrmal life like my friends,

        Thanks for reaching out. It takes a lot to speak up about what you are going through and you are really tough for feeling comfortable to reach out to us. During this tough time, it must be frustrating to keep a steady mindset when your step-dad treats you unfairly. You do not deserve to be treated like that.
        It is not appropriate for your step-dad to be calling you names and being sexist towards what things you should be focusing on. Parents have a different understanding, but you are really great for keeping your cool. Sometimes they have a funny way of showing they care, they just want what is best for you. If you want to talk further and more in depth about everything going on, do not hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY or 1-800-786-2929, we are 24/7 and toll free. You can always send a chat as well at 1800runaway.org. If you’re every feeling unsafe, you can text the National Safe place the word safe and your location to 44357.
        Again thank you for reaching out. Call us at any time. We are here to help.
