    Hi there please see our response to your similar post just now:

    "Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. We are so sorry to hear about what you’ve been through. You absolutely don’t deserve abuse like that.

    If you ever experience anything like that again, you have the right to leave and keep yourself safe. You don’t have to stay in a place that is unsafe for you. If you know any of your neighbors, maybe you could go to their house while things calm down. And maybe you can ask one of them to help you call 911 and file an abuse report. If you can hold on until Monday (as long as you feel safe over the weekend) Teachers and School Counselors can also help you with filing an abuse report. They are mandated reporters, meaning that if they have knowledge of abuse, they are required to report it.

    If possible (and it may not be easy since you don’t have a phone right now), try to document as much of the physical abuse as you can. Pictures are one way to do this. Writing down dates, times, and witnesses to the abuse are another way. If you do end up filing an abuse report, having as much information as possible will make the process easier.

    In your first message, it sounded like none of your siblings were supportive of you. Now that the abuse has progressed, do you think there’s a chance one of them would help you leave the house? Especially if you feel like you are in danger?

    You also mention struggling with suicidal thoughts. If you ever start feeling that way again, please don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Your life is very important and even though it doesn’t seem like it now, things will get better. If you need help, a great resource is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Their phone number is 1-800-273-8255. If you don’t have access to your phone, they also have a chat service through their website – suicidepreventionlifeline.org.

    You also can live chat with us if you want. You can reach our chat service through our website at 1800runaway.org. We have volunteers that would be happy to help you 24/7.

    Again, we are so sorry to hear that you’ve been going through all of this. You don’t deserve what has happened to you and you are very brave for reaching out for help. We wish you the best of luck. And please contact us if you need any more help."

    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. We are sorry to hear that your sister and mother have been treating you in a way that sounds inappropriate, unfair, and violent. If you ever feel like you are in immediate danger, please call 911. Child abuse can come from any source, even other minors. If you feel like the way your mother and your sister treat you is abusive, it might be worth considering reporting as an option. If you wanted to report or learn more about what abuse reporting looks like, please reach out to the National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-422-4453 or childhelp.org. If you want to talk more about what is going on at home and what other options you might have, please give us a call on our 24/7 hotline 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat us at 1800runaway.org.

    Take care,
    NRS

    My sister gets everything in life no consequences, whenever she gets her way with my things and I tell my mother she says "figure it out or let her have it' she also steals from me. Today was the final straw, she constantly hits me but today something I told my mom and nothing then when I took MY PROPERTY away from her she began attacking me so I had to defend myself and she straight up punched me in the face. My whole face is red and swollen along with arms and neck. I took photos and videos. I've tried and tried but I just wanna get away from here at this point I can't I'm only 14 and experiencing this, it's been like this my while life and I'm tired of it.

    Hello,

    Thanks for reaching out to us for help. Nobody deserves to be abused or mistreated. It sounds like you are in a terrible situation at home, and we are sorry to hear that you are being abused and that your mother reacted like that. You have a right to call the police or make a child abuse report. If this is an option you are considering, you can call us any time and we can answer any questions you might have and even file a report on your behalf. You can also reach CHILD HELP at 1-800-422-4453.

    You mentioned that you cut to cope by cutting. A good resource that may be able to help is the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAM). The National Suicide Hotline might be a really great resource for you as well. You can call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) any time you are feeling vulnerable or thinking about hurting yourself.

    You can also call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) for help or support 24/7, or chat with us on www.1800RUNAWAY.org every day between 4:30pm and 11:30pm. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. Please do not hesitate to call; we are looking forward to hearing from you, and wish you the best of luck.

    Sincerely,
    NRS

    I cut and my mom found out. All she did was take my blade grab my wrist cut it deeper than I had ever done it and tell me that that was the way it was done. She doesn´t say anything to me unless it´s a really good insult. I´m constantly being called a mistake. I´ve tried running away and all that did was get me beat up. I don´t have the courage to run away so I cut instead.

    Thank you for getting back to us. First we wanted to clear up that, yes, we are mandated reports. This means that we legally obligated to inform the authorities if any minor discloses abuse or neglect. So if you (or anyone on this forum) share identifying information, such as your name, address, abusers name and phone number we are legally required to make a report with/ without your consent.
    With that being sad, no. Calling us to talk about what is going on at home will not result in your family being taken away.
    If you need anything else please note that the forum is not intended for continual conversation. If you have any follow up questions please use our live chat or give us a call.
    Best wishes,
    NRS

    Hi there! We are confidential so if you called here, and then someone called here asking about whether you called we would not be able to confirm or deny that you called us.

    So please know that we are a safe space to call if you ever need to talk again. We are glad you found us in the first place.

    Take care,

    NRS

    I think I'm going to call on Monday or Wednesday and talk to someone here. I just need to know that by calling no one in my family will be taken away.

    Hello Rose,
    Thank you for taking the time to reply to the original users post. It sounds like you are having a hard time at home and you have been looking for someone to talk to. It is great that you have already started to take the necessary steps to try and get help for your problem. You mentioned that you have already reached out to an online counseling service. If you think that helped then it might be a good idea to contact your school counselor, like you mentioned. Reaching out for help can be tough so thank you for being so brave. For additional support you can also give us a call anytime. We are not trained professionals but we are a supportive ear to listen.
    Best wishes,
    NRS

    My mom since this morning was mad at me. She’s usually always mad at me. She hates me, she prefers my brother over me. She’s always comparing me to him. She yelled at me, she punched me, she slapped me, she hit my head with a broom stick, she called me a **********, she told me I was the worst daughter ever, she told me I could go and die, she told me no one would ever love me and she told me that I’ll forever be a burden in her life. I’m used to it but it doesn’t mean that I’m not hurt. I hate it, I’m so insecure because of her, I always mask it when I go out. I put on a fake smile, fake laughs and fake joy. No one knows what’s going on at our house. My dad is usually working so he’s never home when it happens. When ever I want to tell him what happens, he says that he’s too tired, he’ll talk to me tomorrow but he’s always gone. I have no one to talk too and I hate it. Can you please tell me what to do.
    Hi I'm 12 and I really need someone to talk to about my situation and yours sounds a lot like what I go through. my parents are always fighting
    and my mom is the more dominate one so she'll get mad at dad if he tries to do anything about it. Also is your mom nice sometimes or is she like that all the time? Mine has like two different personalities so she'll be nice and I love her or horrible and I call her the witch in my head. No one else knows about my situation either although I have texted online counselor s before secretly. I'm thinking about telling my school counselor. I just don't want my family to be torn apart so I'm in a bit of a dilemma too. You can respond and start a conversation with me if you want. - rose
