    RE: Fist fight with mom

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. We’re incredibly grateful to be able to help you sort through this seemingly painful and overwhelming situation.

    While we cannot answer your question directly as to who was wrong, we do want you to know that regardless of right or wrong, no one is ever justified in physically harming or neglecting another person and it does sound as if there were several points in your story in which you had attempted to protect yourself from further harm. Just know that you always have the right to report any abuse (physical, mental, sexual, or neglect) to your local police department, family member, or child protective service in your state. If that is something that you don’t really feel comfortable with doing, you can always give us a call to help answer any questions about the process or to walk you through what steps there are.

    It’s very easy to get caught up in the specifics of the argument, but it may be useful to look at the bigger picture of what had happened with your mom and to understand that regardless of what happens, you deserve to be treated with respect and to feel safe at home.
    Though we may not have answered your question fully, we do hope that this was a bit helpful for you. If you’d like to talk more or gain resources relevant to what you are facing at home, we are always here to help. Our lines are open 24/7.

    Take care.

    Fist fight with mom

    My mom and I got into a fight . We usually have verbal fights but this one turned physical . It was over grades .. I have As and Bs and a 4.6 gpa , but she says I can do better and I should get harder . I got offended and we were texting and arguing all throughout the day . She turned off my phone and I started crying in class and everything . I texted her off of wifi and says " can I go live with someone else " she says " absolutely " . So I get home and pack some clothes . She comes home and starts arguing and yelling and I get mad . She tells me to unpack the bags so I'm doing that and I'm throwing the clothes out the bag . She tells me to stop but I keep doing it . She then takes her phone out and records me . She tells me to get out . I then say ok and look for my wallet . She says no get out now . I curse at her and proceed to look for my wallet . She continues to scream and yell and I got fed up and threw a lunchbox at her . She then charges at me and starts punching me over and over . She got me in my eye and it's now black and swollen . She says get out again so I bend down to put on shoes and she grabs my Neck and continues to tell me to get out . I run out and slam the door and I went to a friends house and used their phone . I don't know if that's self defense because I threw something or what . I know I was wrong , but was she wrong too ?

    Re: my mom just punched me

    Hello,
    Thank you for taking the time to write to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.
    First off we want to say that abuse whether its physical, sexual, emotional or verbal, it is never okay and you do not deserve it and do have the right to report it. We know that you mentioned that you have talked to the police and that they told you that you can report it. We want you to know that you do have the right to make a report with Child Protective Services. Child Help USA is an information and referral line that can connect you with your local CPS abuse hotline. That number is 1-800-422-4453. If you ever felt like making a report or needed help, we are here to assist with that. We understand that making an abuse report can be intimidating so if you like we can call together to provide support.
    It sounds like after an argument with your mother you are not feeling scared. You deserve to feel safe in your own home. No one has the right to threaten your safety. We want you to know that we recognize that takes a lot of courage to reach out for help. If you feel comfortable you can give us a call and one of our trained liners will be happy to talk to you more about your situation. 1-800-RUNAWAY

    Re: My mom just punched me

    Hi there,

    Thank you for sharing your story with us. It sounds like your mom has been aggressive towards you. You certainly do not deserve to be mistreated and no one has the right to punch you or to put their hands on you. It’s great that you are taking steps to reach out for help. Maybe there’s someone else, a family member, relative, a trusted family friend, who can intervene by advocating on your behalf.

    Reporting abuse is also an option. We know that this can be really intimidating and really difficult for a lot of people. If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering.

    We would love to talk with you more about your situation and offer you more information. We’re here 24/7, just give us a call at 1-800-RUNAWAY.

    Stay strong,
    NRS

    re: I hate her

    Hi,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are going through a tough time with your family and you really want to be out on your own. In most states if you are 15, there is a possibility that you could be sent back home if you do come in contact with the police. As your legal guardian, your mom would have a right to call the police and report you as a runaway. As for the future, it may be a good idea to think of a plan or back up plan for yourself and how you would be surviving if you left. It must be really difficult for you to have to go through physical abuse from your mom and also have her yelling, saying harsh things to you. It sounds like you’re dealing with a stressful situation. Is there anyone that you can talk to about what is happening, or anywhere that you feel safe to be? For example, are you involved in any activities, or hobbies that allow you to spend time away from home for a while? If not, you can contact Child Help USA on their hotline or website, to speak with someone about abuse and ways you can stay safe. Their number is 1-800-422-4453.

    You can always contact us directly at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). Lastly, please note that we offer a live chat via our website at www.1800runaway.org every day from 4:30p to 11:30p CST.

    Take care and stay safe,
    NRS

    Re: my mom just punched me

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to runaway safeline. We are glad you contacted us.

    That situation with your grandma sounds really horrible, and it makes sense that you’re scared. No one should ever be treated that way.

    Everyone deserves to be in a safe and supportive place. You know your situation best, so if you think this sort of behavior will continue, then you can contact Child Protective Services to report what you are going through. You can also call Child Help USA anonymously and ask info questions about CPS and what the next steps might be. (1-800-422-4453.)

    Also, think about whether you have other friends and relatives you can turn to who you trust. It’s always helpful to have a support network, and people in your life you can speak with who will listen to you, and what you’re going through.

    Also, feel free to call us. We are available 24/7 and can talk through the situation in more detail. Again, it’s terrible that you are going through this, and awesome that you are taking steps to find a safe and supportive environment.

    My grandma just hit me and now face is bleeding

    So recently my grandma has been really mean to me and yelling and me and stuff for dumb reasons. So today I was watching some TV with my brother and my grandma came on the living room randomly and grabbed me. Then she sat me up and yelled "SIT UP!" Then she hit me. Now my face is bleeding and in scared. She always thinks my brother is amazing because he's a little younger than me but we are twins so we are both the same age. I need an answer and I know it's something around abuse because when I was young she would always hit me for no reason and grab me. I don't want to call 911 but should I?

    re: my dad just hit me...

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting us. It seems that you and your dad are having some problems at home. You don't really get along and he has been physically abusive towards you. You seem frustrated with all of this and it has caused you to want to kill your dad. That sounds tough. If you do feel that you are in danger, you are on the right track with your idea of calling the police. They are the ones who can help you most immediately in that situation. We are not legal experts, so we don't know how old you have to be to file a restraining order on your own. It's a good idea to contact a local court office to see what that process looks like and what the requirements are. As far as avioding the situation, you may want to think of ways you can be safe. You are welcome to contact Child Help USA at 1-800-422-4453 and talk through some strategies with them.

    If you need us again you are welcome to reach out.

    Take care,
    NRS

    my dad hit me ...

    I feel unsafe in my house since the day after last Mother's Day . I didn't take out the garbage and my dad was getting mad at me telling me that I better take out the trash cause it's SOOOOOOO Important . Then I asked him " if it's so important, why am I the only one taking it out ? " so he got up and started walking towards me saying " shut up ! " repeatedly . Then he started trying to hit me saying " let's go . " he punched me and knocked me over, I got up and was going to take him down but knocked down my grandma by accident in the process . I was not hurt except for a couple cold sores in my mouth where he hit me . But I am still afraid that he would still hit me . Not afraid to get hurt , but after that day , the whole week after I had thoughts of killing him ... I felt I was insane , but that's all I could think about . I think he is on drugs because he sleeps a lot on the couch in the kitchen , which by the way is super embarrassing when guests come over . And then he wakes up to eat then sleeps again for a very long time . Like 3 or 4 days usually , and then when he wakes up , he is a complete douche bag . I just wish he would go back to sleep ... Forever . Irritates me just by doing nothing ALL DAY . To me he is a complete waste of space . He eats all the food that he doesn't even buy , has no job to pay even a penny for the bills , hell he even asks me for money . I've stopped giving him money a while ago since he still owes me $76 . But I feel like I still have to listen to him because he is my dad . The only thing that works on him is his mouth . I'm sorry if this seems like hate mail ... I just hate him since he hit me ... The thoughts of killing him have gone away , but if he touches me again I'm going to call the cops , and I'll make sure he goes prison . Is there any way any of this can be avoided ? Can I get a restraining order or something ?
