  • I Need Advice

    Let me start by saying that I am a 14 year old that has lived a stable life. However, an incident has happened today and I don’t know what actions to take: This morning I woke up late (10:30am) I had slept for 3 hours and 30 minutes the night before and had played in a concert in the evening. I woke up to screaming in my brother’s room (He is younger than me). I stepped out of my room and found out that my brother had cracked the screen of the Apple Watch that my mother had given to him by sleeping with it on his wrist. She was extremely angry and my brother was very sad. She started shouting at me because I had woken up late as a result of her terrible mood. She started screaming at everyone at the house even though no one had done anything to her. She asked me if I could fix the watch and I replied no because of the difficulty of the task. Later, my father and her went out for lunch and when they came back I was with my brother. My mom *screamed* at us to put our clothes in the washer which was a task that she has not asked us to do earlier in the day. I asked her why she was screaming at me even though I had done nothing to her and she sad something about me never coming to her unless I ask her for something, which isn’t true because I talk to her extremely often. She then threw my clothes down the stairs while I had locked myself in a room because she was running around with a plastic tube that belonged to a vacuum. She gave me the options to either leave or pick all the clothes up. She sent me out of the house. My father was sent out of the house because he said he would divorce her if she couldn’t control her anger and my brother also because she was angry at him. I ran to a nearby park and it is going to be dark in an hour. My parents don’t argue often and my mom is still extremely angry. What should I do?

    Hey there,

    Thanks for reaching out and sharing a bit about what's going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. Your mom's actions today sound really worrisome and stressful and it must be really difficult to be around. It seems like maybe your mom doesn't quite understand the impact that her actions is having on everyone in the family. It could be a good idea to work with a local family counselor or have a conversation mediated by a school counselor/social worker, trusted friend, or family member to help clear the air. If you'd like, you can also call us directly and we can conduct a conference call with your mom so you have a safe environment where you can express yourself.

    If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
