    Yesterday I was sick from school and laying in bed when my mom came up into my room. She kept telling me how I was worthless and lying about throwing up and passing out (which I did, and she saw me do). I hid myself under my blankets and started to cry. My mom harshly asked my why was I crying and I didn't answer, I was afraid to answer. She asked my repeatedly, her voice growing with more anger. The final time she asked, she punched my repeatedly in the ribs and dragged me onto the floor. For about 2 hours I laid there on the floor in severe pain. During those two hours, I thought about suicide, the only thing that kept me alive today were my friend who I knew would miss me if I did kill myself.

    Hi,
    Thank you so much for reaching out and sharing what's been going on. It sounds like your mom was not being considerate of your feelings, which is frustrating and hurtful. You deserve to feel comfortable and loved at home, especially by your parent and especially when you're sick. You mentioned that you considered suicide but your relationship with your friend stopped you. We're so glad that you have a support in your friend. If you ever feel like you may be in danger of hurting yourself or find yourself considering suicide again, you can always call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

    It sounds like you and your mom don't see eye-to-eye sometimes. It could be an option to try family counseling. We know this can be a difficult thing to bring up with your mom, so if you need help having that conversation you're welcome to give us a call at 1-800-786-2929. We are here 24/7 to listen and help.

    Thank you again for reaching out. If you need additional resources or want to talk more specifically about what's going on, feel free to give us a call. Stay strong and stay safe!

    I was sitting in the front seat while my mother was driving her car and my brother was sitting behind me. My brother hit me because I wouldn’t give him any of my candy, so I hit him back and he hit me again so I told him when we get home imma hit him back. when we got home he made a mess in my room so I hit him to get him back and then my mom found out so she punched me in the face and grabbed me by the neck for hitting him even though he hit me and he is not supposed to hit a girl and she didn’t even do anything to him. And my brother is almost 12 and I’m almost 14.

    Hello we want to thank you for reaching out to us here at NRS! We know that you must be going through a difficult time and want to be in a safer position than you were before. Our hope here is to listen and help however we can.
    From what we gather from your story is that you have been having some issues with your mom and she recently hit you and kicked you and your siblings out. Now you are dealing with thoughts and other issues you wish to find a solution to this. Our first concern is that you are having suicidal thoughts. Know that you can reach out to people who would love to help and listen. You can reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) where they would help you talk through your thoughts of suicide. Please know you matter. Much of what you have told us constitutes as neglect and abuse. You do not deserve to be treated like nothing and you deserve to feel safe at home. Some options you have are that you can report what has been happening to you and your siblings to the police. Many of the times when this happens they will try to find family members first to hand over custody to. This could possibly give you some options in who you go with you and your siblings. Another option you have is to inform your school counselor or teacher. You can also feel free to call the National Child Abuse Hotline (1-800-422-4453) from there they would help you through some more options you might have.
    Again we want to thank you for seeking us out and asking for help. We hope that we have helped you in this current situation you find yourself in. If for any reason you might need to ask more questions or perhaps have concerns please do not hesitate to call us. Again our number is (1-800-786-2929) or you can reach us at www.1800runaway.org and once there you can use our chat options. We hope that you can find the nest solution to your current situation.
    Best Wishes - NRS

    My mom hit me over and over after we had gotten into an argument. I have anger issues and I suffer from depression and anxiety. I'll admit that when I've been bottling up everything for a long time then I will snap. I'll yell and throw stuff, but a day ago it was much more worse then being yelled at. My mom had forced my door open, and it was around 1 in the morning, and I looked at her before she got in my face yelling at me and screaming, which lead to her suddenly cursing and hitting me a couple times across the face and pushing me. I cried and she cursed at me saying I deserved it for having an attitude with her and being rude when it comes to social activities and get bf. After that she took all of me and my siblings belongings away and telling Mr that she wouldn't be our mom anymore, she also told me I could call that police if I didn't want her around, she said I could live with my dad, whom she divorced
    I cried along with my siblings before leaving to my moms Co workers house. And now I've been forced to return home after my mom threatened to kick us out and have us stay with our dad or grandma. I'm currently scared and crying in bed. I want to leave and be with other family members again. All of this is leading me to feel hateful towards myself and want to end everything. I'm so angry, it's all my fault.

    Hello there,

    Thank you for reaching out to NRS and having the strength to share your story with us. We are sorry to hear about your situation and what you’ve been dealing with. Ideally, home would be a place where people feel safe, loved, and valued, and you do not deserve to be treated that way.

If you are interested in filing an abuse report against your mom, you can call us anytime, or you can contact the National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-422-4453 or www.childhelp.org. We suggest that you try to record or photograph any evidence you can of your mom’s abuse, including injuries, text messages, or conversations.
    Even if you don’t want to report the abuse, it may help you to find people who can support and listen to you. This could include friends or relatives, teachers, guidance counselors, or other trusted adults in your community. They may even be able to provide you with a place to go when your mom is being violent. Talking to a counselor can be helpful in many situations you contact the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration could connect you with resources in your area; they can be reached through phone 1-877-726-4727 and online at samhsa.gov. For your mental health, journaling, reading, engaging in a physical activity, or listening to music could be some ways to help you get through the everyday stress in the meantime.

    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.

    Thanks so much for reaching out to us at NRS. It sounds like you’re feeling scared and confused about what to do. The way your mom treats you is not okay, and no one deserves to be hurt physically or emotionally like that. What you’re describing is abuse, which is against the law, and you do have the right to report it to the police, a teacher at school, or your local child abuse reporting hotline. Child Help USA is an information and referral line that can connect you with your local CPS abuse hotline and answer questions about possible outcomes of reporting abuse (you would not always be removed from the home). That number is 1-800-422-4453. If you feel nervous about making a report, you can also give us a call at 1-800-786-2929 and we can call together. If you feel your mom is getting mad and you’re worried she will hurt you again, or if you feel like you might hurt yourself, please call 911 right away.
    It sounds like you’re feeling conflicted about the situation because you care about your mom, even though you recognize her behavior is harmful. These are very normal feelings. But you deserve to feel safe and cared for. It shows a lot of courage that you are reaching out for help, and we are here for you 24/7 if you want to talk. --NRS

    Hi I'm a 12 year old girl and going through something like this. I love my mom very much and when she's not angry she's one of my favorite people. But when my sisters around (she's 9) and I try to talk to her, my mom always thinks I'm "picking" at her and then gets really mad at me. I always tell her I'm not I'm just talking with her, but she never believes me. She calls be a little b**** and says she wishes I were never born. She sometimes grabs my hair and drags me to my room. A few days ago she held me down on my bed and was punching me and kicking me. I got bruises down my leg. She was trying to hit me with a blanket and it hurt a lot. So I grabbed the blanket and threw it at her, and it gave her a bruise on her forehead. She started screaming at me even more and I was crying a lot. After yelling at me even more and saying horrible things to me she left. For two hours I hid in my room, hoping that she wouldn't come back (my door locks from the outside, so sometimes she locks me in). I made a list of things that I could do to make her less mad at me, but they all ended in more screaming. I thought about killing myself. Eventually she came back in and said she wished I didn't act like that and was more calmed down. She said that she couldn't believe that I punched her. I said what, you held me down and beat me! Then she got mad again and called me a liar and started kicking me again. Then she left. About half an hour later she came back in and said she hoped I was sorry. I said I was. She said she didn't mean anything she said and that she loved me. Then we hugged and I cried. We were fine the rest of the day. This hasn't happened again all week, except last night when I sense she was getting mad, I hid in the bathroom until I thought she had calmed down. I have threatened to call the police on my mom before but she's always laughed at me and said then I could get taken away. I love my mom very much, but I hate when she's like this, which is about once a week. I haven't told anyone about it, because I'm afraid she could get in trouble and me and me and my sister could get taken away. What should I do?

    Hello,

    You mentioned something that raise’s concern for your safety and well-being.
    If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. We are not experts on the issue, but generally once it's been reported, social services will either decide whether or not to take the case and further investigate. If they do take the case, they will send out someone from child protective services to do an investigation (interviewing people in the household) and from there they will decide the level of danger within the household. It generally ranges from no danger (the youth stays in the home, some services are given, and the case is closed), moderate danger (they will provide family services with possible temporary displacement) and high danger (they will remove the youth from the home and offer certain services).

    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.

    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
    Please be safe and reach out soon by phone or chat so that we may help.

    Hi, thank you so much for reaching out. It sounds like you were in a very scary situation, but you don't have to go through it alone. We are here to help and available 24/7 at 1800RUNAWAY.

    Abuse is very harmful and you do not deserve to be treated that way. One option you have are filing an abuse report (we can help with that over the phone!). This would mean filing a report with the police detailing the incident. If you have any evidence like photos of any bruises or other markings, that could be very helpful. After the report is filed an investigation might follow, and for more specific details on this you can reach out to your local police department's non-emergency line.

    It sounds like being at home may not be the safest option, and considering other living arrangements might be beneficial. There are lots of resources available that might be applicable to your situation and we would be happy to help you find some over the phone.

    Stay safe,

    NRS

    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.
    We are sorry that things are not going well between you and your mom. That must be pretty hard for you. It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change.

    Your safety and well-being is important.
    You do not deserve to be pushed, kicked or abused in any way by any one.
    You are not to blame for what she did. Hurting yourself does not have to be your only option.
    Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this.

    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.


    You might also consider calling 9-1-1 for immediate help.
    To report child abuse contact Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453

    Sometimes when things are so out of control it is difficult to know just where to turn. You did well reaching out today. We would like you to know NRS is here to listen and here to help. Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of.

    If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon. Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).

    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Be safe and stay strong,
    NRS
