  • emotionally abusive parents will they find me

    hello. I’m 15 my parents have always been a bit harsh. When I was younger my dad would always threaten to hit me with the belt when I was upset when I was little. I had to beg him not to. I would always try super hard for good grades so my parents would leave me alone. As I’ve started to grow my mom has been more an more critical of everything I do, and my dad is a ticking time bomb and will explode if I don’t walk on eggshells. If I don’t agree on something with him he’ll yell at me. Sometimes I just feel like an accessory to my parents. They don’t like me for I want to be and they don’t like the fact I think for myself. They have a very specfic idea of what they want me to be and when I don’t reach that idea of that person they lash out at me. They tend to never believe me when it came to physichal issues. I had to fight to get the cardiologist for my orthostatic intolerance, and I need a follow up for medicine I have a place where I can go. I’m just scared if they find me. I’m scared what they’re faces will look like and what they will do to me. I’ve been to group thearapy with my parents but it is almost always unproductive. And if there is ever a breakthrough they just revert to the same people they were before. I tried to confront them once, but they shut me down. I just want them to stop hurting me

    Hi there,
    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 sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now and you mentioned being harmed. We’re sorry you’re going through this. You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. You may also be able to report any mistreatment to CPS. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. They can tell you more about how CPS could respond to your situation. If you ever need assistance calling out to CPS to make an abuse or neglect report please call is at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
    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.

    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. You are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
    If you would like to talk more in detail please chat soon through our website www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button) if you are unable to call in. We unfortunately cannot give advice as we are non-directive. You know your situation best
    We hope to hear from you soon.
    Be safe,
    NRS
