  • I want to ran away to my Dads house instead of being at my Moms house

    I want to stay at my dad’s house instead of my mom's house, however i don’t know what to do

    Hi, I’m 15 of age and I can’t stand being at my moms house. She has a husband and I absolutely dislike him. I feel scared and awkward around him. I feel trapped inside my bedroom and feels like it’s not safe to go out when he’s around. I wish he never came to the house. My mom and him always argue when I’m there and most of the times I feel confused and most of what to do. Whenever I talk to my mom, she just puts all of her feelings and emotions onto me and I don’t know what to do. She explains everything bad that been happening between him and also work. Whenever I try to talk about my feelings, I feel like she doesn’t listen. Because of all this, I feel so lost, confused, depressed, and angry about everything. I don’t where to go or talk to. All I feel like is doing is running away to more dads house where it is more peaceful. Everything at my dads house is quieter and calmer, however it’s not perfect, but less issues. Is a better idea to go my dads? And what do I do?

    Hey there,
    Thank you for reaching out, it seems like you have gone through a lot and your mom as acted as if you are her personal counselor and looking to you for support. Parents should at the least listen to you and should try to be as supportive as they can. It is understandable that you would feel uncomfortable when your mom is always arguing and putting stuff on your shoulders and would look to your biological father’s place in hopes of more security.
    It is possible to go to your father’s house if he has at least partial custody of you. If your mom has full custody you may need her permission in order to go to your dad’s. Otherwise she could report you as a runaway and have the police try to bring you home.
