    Hello my name is [edit] and i have some thoughs of suicide and have attempted 3 times. I have thought of running away and right now i am a runaway victim.I am at my sister's house and my parents dont even know. I am disliking myself more everyday because of what my father does he calls me a pig and a slut I am only 11 years old how can i be a slut. But my father has had a grudge against me since i was born. And my mom and dad fight because of me and my mom always winds up getting hurt because my dad is mean and trust me if you were in my life for one day you would go back back home..... I have helped so many people but i cant help myself because everytime i want t my dad gets his chance to fight with me.. I have prayed to god that i am going to just die one day because i cant take my dad he just pushes me to the point that i just cry out loud and it makes me look weak in front of my dad and i dont want to feel weak because then he thinks it is ok to pick on my again...

    Thanks for reaching out to us. It sounds like you have a lot going on in your life and are trying to figure out a way to better your situation. You definitely don’t deserve to be treated the way that your dad treats you; no one does. From what you wrote, it sounds like there are times that your mom stands up for you, but your dad hurts her as well. We’re sorry to hear this. What types of ways does he hurt you and your mom? Does he ever physically hurt you in addition to calling you names? Have you ever thought of reporting the way he treats you to Child Protective Services? This is something we can help you with if you were to call in. We’re actually mandated reporters, which means if we get certain information (your name, dad’s name, address) we would have to report it. However, since we are a completely anonymous and confidential hotline, meaning we only know as much as you tell us, if you were to call us we’d only report it if you wanted us to. We can also talk to you about how the reporting process works before you make that decisison.

    You wrote that you are currently on the run and at your sister’s house; why do you think your parents don’t know yet? When did you leave? What is your plan at this point? Are you able to rely on your sister when you need support? Are there other people in your life that you feel like support you and help you? You also wrote that you’ve attempted suicide 3 times. What happened each of those times? Have you confided in anyone about these attempts? Suicide is a very serious thing, so it’s great that you’ve reached out for help. Sometimes it helps to just have someone to talk to. Here at the National Runaway Switchboard, we’re available for just that. We’re not here to tell you what to do or give you advice, but are rather here to just listen to whatever you want to talk about. We can maybe help you come up with options as well as a plan to keep you safe. We also have a lot of resources for agencies all over the US that may be able to help you. You also mentioned that you’ve helped others, which is great, but that you aren’t able to help yourself. What kind of help do you feel like you need? What have you tried in the past? Situations like this are difficult because it’s not your fault for the way your dad treats you and therefore, it’s nothing that you can do to change him. This, of course, doesn’t make what he’s doing okay.

    We appreciate that you shared a part of your story with us. If you want to talk more about how you’re feeling, we are always available. The number is 1-800-RUNAWAY. Just so you know we don’t keep records of who calls us, so you don’t have to worry about anyone finding out. Call anytime.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
