    Hi there,

    Thank you for taking the brave step to reach out to NRS and share a bit about your situation. It is never okay for a parent to hit their child and what happened is not your fault. You deserve to be treated in a way that makes you feel safe and cared for.

    You deserve to be getting support with this challenging situation. We encourage you to reach out to people that you trust. Sometimes having a safe space to talk about things can help you brainstorm ideas to make your situation better you had not thought of previously. Trusted adults to talk to might include friend's parents, family members, or a counselor at school.

    If you are not quite ready to talk to someone in person, there is an organization called Child Help which advocates for young people in abusive or unsafe situations. You can contact them at 1-800-422-4453 or go to childhelp.org to talk more about your options.

    We truly want to be a support for you as you decide on your next steps. We are available 24/7 to listen and help as much as possible. Please do not hesitate to reach out again by phone or chat if you would like to talk more in-depth about your situation and explore your options. You can contact us by phone at 1-800-786-2929 or use our live chat services at www.1800runaway.org.

    I had a headache so I had to turn down my lights in the bathroom. I tried to explain to her why I turned the lights down. She got really mad and punched me then pushed me to the ground. What do I do?

    Hello! Thank you so much for reaching out, we appreciate you seeking help during this difficult time.

    To begin with, you mentioned that your mom has punched and slapped you before, and has done it to one of your brothers before as well. No one should have to endure any abuse whether it be physically, emotionally, or mentally. If you find yourself in that situation again, you may look into the possibility to reaching out to your local authorities, and see if they can get child protective services involved. The National child abuse hotline is a great resource as well to report abuse, and offer services to further better your recent situation, they can be reached anytime at 1800) 422-4453. You may also see if your school counselor is available to have a heart to heart conversation with you, about what has been going on at home, and how that makes your feel.

    Furthermore, you stated that you’ve cut yourself before because you couldn’t help your brother when your guardian was abusing him. You’re really brave for having to endure the whole situation with your brother, and we want you to know that you’re not alone. We care about your safety state an, and wouldn’t want you to keep self-harming. If you ever feel like you need to talk to someone about yourself harm, you may contact the substance abuse and mental health services hotline at 1800) 662-4357. Another option you could consider would be contacting the national alliance on mental illness at 1800) 950-6264.

    We hope that you can seek help from these options discussed, and want you to know that we care about your safety, you’re not alone in this battle. In fact, you’re really brave for going through this difficult time in your life. If for whatever reason you require additional assistance, or want us to make a call on your behalf, feel free to call us at 1800) 786-2929. Best of luck!

    Thank you so much for reaching out! You’ve taken the initiative in seeking help, and it does not go unnoticed

    To begin with, you mentioned that there is physical abuse going on in the household when. No one deserves to go through any psychical, emotional, or verbal abuse. You’re really brave for being open about your abuse experiences, and if the abuse is re-occurring, you can reach out to the National Child Abuse hotline at 1800)422-4453.Another option to explore would be to seek out help through a school counselor, they may be able to explore options with you on how to go about handling your situation at home. If at any time you feel unsafe, you can text the national safe place the word SAFE and your location at 44357. They would send you a text with the closest safe place near you.

    Again, we’re really glad appreciative you reached out to us! It takes a lot to ask for help and you’re trying to figure out your options which is really good to see. If you need any additional resources or would like to chat further, you can always give us a call at 1800) 786-2929. Remember, you’re not alone in this, best of luck!
