  • My parents always blame me for their arguments

    My parents have never been a good couple. They have considered divorce, but it never has happened. They don't smoke or drink frequently, but they still get out of control (mostly my dad) My mom and dad fight A LOT even In public. My sister always tries to boss me around and when I try to tell her to stop my parents get all up on me. same thing with my brother but when I try to talk or be friends with him, he gets defensive for no reason and screams at me. My parents never hesitate when it comes to jumping on my @$$. I may sometimes be a problem but the majority of the time It's not me. When one of my parents is without the other one, they act better, but when my siblings get involved it always goes to me. I wouldn't say my dad's abusive, but he always grabs me and aggressively throws me. He doesn't beat me but this is close to it. My parents always try to find ways to make it seem like I'm gonna f*** something up for them. Like we're going on a cruise next week and say "We're gonna be on a boat for a week with the same people and you better not make a scene like always" My "scenes" are never even about me... They're always about when I try to reason with someone calmly and then that person gets loud and then suddenly I'm the root of the problem. For me, It's either I started the problem or I got in the way apparently. Which Isn't true. and my parents always say that if I have a problem with my brother or sister, to report it to them, but when I do they always try to teach me a lesson about how I shouldn't tell on them and stuff like that. They never help like they say and I'm at that age where I recognize that. I'm 13 and this kind of situation is not noticed very well by other people, but is definitely a problem. My dad always looks for problems in me even when I'm not doing anything, and no one else is involved. I might be wiping my face and he gets mad at me for "mocking him" because he did it just then, too. Sometimes I wish my parents did get a divorce, but I'd rather leave the family altogether. I really want to stay at my school and keep my friends and my pets, but I don't want to stay in this situation. I hope I can find a better home soon.

    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
    While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
    We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); (click on the chat button).
