    Hello there,
    Thanks for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like a lot has been going on at home. You deserve the right to take a shower in your own home and to feel clean. The fact that your parents are not allowing you to be clean is very concerning. You can always reach out to Child Help to talk to them about what is going on at home. They are a supportive resource that helps youth who might be not treated well at home. You do not have to tell them anything you do not want to, but they might be a beneficial resource to have. Their number is 800-422-4453 or you can go to www.childhelp.org to start a live chat there as well.
    On top of that, we would be more than happy to talk with you further about what is going on at home. We can talk through resources and perhaps come up with a plan. If you would like to talk further it would have to be either through our live chat or a phone call since we can only respond to forums twice. You can call us at 1800-RUNAWAY or chat with us at www.1800RUNAWAY.org.
    Stay safe and take care,
    NRS

    My mom and dad won’t let me take a shower because my room “isn’t clean enough” as they usually say. But this keeps happening and I’ll go for days without a shower for the stupidest reasons! My hair gets so greasy and so my mom always says that I’m ugly or my hair is stupid. But its not my fault! I just need a shower! It’s really hard to brush and gets worse and worse along with the number of days of not taking a shower. Please help and respond quickly. I don’t know how to get them to let me take a shower...

    Hey there,

    It sounds like it’s been rough at home lately, please know we are here to listen and support you in any way we can. We’re thankful you reached out to us!

    You mentioned wanting to know how you can leave home before turning 18. The easiest way to leave home is with your mom’s permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your mom. If there is someone who might help talk to your mom on your behalf and would be willing to offer a place for you to stay, that could be an option to explore. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.

    If you feel that you are not safe at any moment please don’t hesitate to contact 911, your local police department. If you’re interested in learning more about reporting any kind of abuse or neglect, you could look into ChildHelp USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org.

    It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide or self-harm if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.

    Please reach out soon so that we may offer support and resources to you. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

    Be safe,

    NRS

    Hello there –

    Thank you so much for taking the time out of our day to write to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. We hope that by helping them and helping you that there are other’s that are scrolling through will get the information that they need.

    It’s hard to talk to just anyone one about what has been going on. Please rest assured that we are completing confidential. So anything that you share with us will stay between us. We don’t ask for any identifying information, unless you want to report any abuse. We certainly want to help you. If you give us a call on our 24/7 hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) we could help you find resources in your area and could potentially help you brainstorm a possible solution to the issues you are having. We would love to talk to you.

    Hello –

    Thank you for contacting us here at the National Runaway Safeline. We understand that it takes great courage to reach out. We are sorry to hear about your situation, no one deserves to be treated that way, especially by someone who is supposed to be a support system for you.

    It is important to know that you have options and resources to help advocate for yourself. A great resource for you could be the National Child Abuse Hotline. You can reach them at 1-800-422-4453. You can call them anonymously to learn about the abuse reporting process, or directly report abuse to this line. They are a good resource for talking through your options if there is verbal/physical abuse going on at home.

    Another option is taking advantage of our conference call service. This service is a moderated conversation between you, a member of the NRS, and your parents. In this conversation you set the guidelines and goals in order to have a productive conversation that can improve your conditions at home. To learn more about this resource, give us a call 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

    We hope the information provided helps. Remember we are available 24/7 and can be toll-free reached at the number listed above. We are confidential, anonymous, and non-direct. We can also be reached via live chat anytime.

    Best Wishes

    ~NRS

    my mom beats me and trows meat the door. she has never laid a finger on my sister which is just two years older than me. She came from Nigeria. She has never really lived with our mom. When she doe something bad, she doesn't get beaten, but if I do something bad my mom beats me. I don't even want to stay in the same room as her. Please, do I confront her about it?

    Hi,
    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline – we are here to help and to listen.
    We are sorry to hear that your mom is yelling at you and that she told you she regrets adopting you. You do not deserve to be treated in that way. It sounds like you are doing what you are supposed to be doing as far as your online learning.
    A helpful option could be to access a school counselor or mental health professional in your area, sometimes it is helpful to have difficult conversations with family when there is a third person involved.
    If you’d like to discuss these options further, we would be happy to talk to you via our 24/7 hotline (1-800-786-2929) or through our chat feature.
    Best of luck,
    National Runaway Safeline
