  • I feel scared but no one cares

    Last night, my dad I had a huge fight. I had to get police at my house because he tried to knock me out kith a pot and threaten to kill me.I I explain the situation to the cops, but they lectured me about how if I live under his house, I must follow his rules. I feel scared, but no one in my family believes me, some even threatning to beat me. I want to leave, but I'm too young to do much. Please help...

    I feel scared but no one cares


    Thanks for reaching out to us for help. We are so sorry to hear about what happened between you and your father. Nobody has a right to hit you or abuse you. It is understandable that you are feeling afraid. You have been threatened by your father and other family members, and it sounds like a very unsafe environment at home right now. We are sorry to hear that the police did not listen to you and lectured you after you were hit or threatened. You have a right to report the abuse to Child Protective Services in your state. This is a separate agency from police or law enforcement. You can find out more by calling Child Help USA at 1-800-422-4453. You can also call us any time 24/7 and we can talk through your situation and come up with resources and a plan to stay safe. We can even file an abuse report for you if you want our help doing that. We are mandated reporters, which means if you disclose abuse and your name and address or identifying info, we have to make a report by law. However, if you are not sure about reporting, you can choose to stay anonymous. Making an abuse report can be scary, especially after your bad experience with the police. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can, and we can help you figure out how to get to safety. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
