    My mom is neglecting me for her boyfriend and now I have no where to sleep. I hate being home and i try to be out of the house whenever I can. The counselers at my school didnt help and all my friends are untrustworthy. I hate my sister because she bully's me and my brother is in college. I have no one

    Hi,

    Thanks so much for taking the time to reach out to us tonight. We are so sorry that your mom did that to you. You definitely do not deserve to be hit. It is understandable that you had a panic attack, as getting hit can be a pretty traumatic situation. Finding the next steps to do in this kind of situation can be difficult, but it's great that you are reaching out for help.

    So if you feel comfortable doing so you can file a child abuse report with the National Child Abuse Hotline. Their number is 1-800-422-4453. They are there to help you and listen to you and they can also answer any questions that you may have. If you are hesitant about reaching out to them, you can call us and we can reach out to them for you.

    You can also tell a friend, family member, trusted adult, or even a teacher about what is going on at home. It may be a good idea to reach out to others in your area who care for you to see if they can possibly provide you with some resources.

    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline (NRS). I’m sorry to hear that you are dealing with a stressful situation at home. Abuse of any kind is not ok. It’s certainly understandable that you’re upset. It’s very mature of you to know that hitting back is not going to help matters.
    Does your Mom normally behave like this or is this something new? There is no excuse for being abusive of course but sometimes there are explanations for unusual behavior. It may help for you to get some advice from an adult you trust who knows your Mom and your family situation. Another source of advice might a school counselor. If you feel like you need to talk to someone anonymously about how to deal with your Mom’s behavior, ChildHelp may be a good option for you. Their number is (800) 422-4453 and their website is www.childhelp.org.
    We take calls 24 hours a day/7 days week and we’d be glad to talk to you in more detail about your situation and determine how else we may be able to help you out.
    Take care of yourself.

    Yesterday my mom started yelling at because I didn't let her borrow my shoes then she started calling me names and she wanted me to take her somewhere and I said no because she was being rude I was on the sofa and she tried pulling me to go and I said no leave alone and then she started calling me names again and I told her to leave alone she hit me and left me bruises. I didn't hit her back because that's my mom no matter what but I'm upset with her

    Thanks for reaching out to us about what you’ve been going through. It sounds like you’ve been having a rough time at home with your mom. It is never ok for someone to feel unsafe or physically abused. We are here to listen and help the best way we can.
    If you ever feel in immediate danger, you can always call 911, especially if your mom is threatening your life or being reckless and endangering you and your siblings. Another option is to report this because putting you and your siblings in danger could be considered neglectful or abusive. The national child abuse hotline can help you file a report or provide other options for what you can do in this situation. It is called Child Help 1-800-422-4453. If you would like help doing so, we offer conference calling so you can call us 24/7 at 1-800-786-2929 and we can call Child Help or your local child protective services together.
    If you ever want to talk about what you’ve been going through, feel free to call us here. We are completely confidential and are here to listen and help you. Another option may be to talk to someone at school like a teacher or guidance counselor. However, you should know that anyone who works at school is a mandated reporter, which means if you tell them anything that could be considered abuse or neglect, they are required to report this to child protective services for your own safety and that of your siblings.
    Please do not hesitate to call us or live chat us on our website if you want to talk further or want some more resources like counseling or local youth services. You are incredibly brave to be dealing with all of this. Call us anytime: 1-800-786-2929.
    Stay safe!

    I have similar situations , my mom will leave for 2 days my brother and I are teenagers and we will get into heated arguements and all , my mom had put her hands on my older sister fighter as if she is just a women on the streets , kicked her punched her , threw her around , she's hit us with the dogs leash and with belts , just today she threatened to punch me in the face , she has hit before , when I told her I was leaving she hit and hit me , she slapped my sister in the face , she never really did anything to my brother and my sister had called the police on her for punching her in the face but they said that they couldn't do anything because it's her mother and it's not really abuse , it's decipline I think that's how you write it anyways I think we know the difference between decipline and what's not right , she only listens to my step-dad does everything he says but he never really put his hands in us cause my dad said he couldn't, so my mom is all we got now but she seem s to be more aggressive and I admit I have talking back problems but I don't think it's good for someone to hit their child for that

    Hello there,
    Thank you for posting on our forum and sharing your story. It sounds like you’re faced with a lot right now. You don’t deserve to be hurt like you have been. In fact, it sounds like you’re describing abuse and that is NEVER ok and it is NOT your fault.
    You mentioned you didn’t want her to get in trouble. We’re not here to pressure you into getting her in trouble, but you do have the right to report what is happening to you. To find out what could happen if you reported and how to do it, please visit www.childhelp.org.
    You mentioned you’d like to try to talk to her. Your safety is very important to us. It might be helpful to have another adult there with you if you managed to arrange a time to talk with her. Maybe someone you trust like a neighbor, family friend or a friend’s parent would be best in this situation. While talking can sometimes sound like a sensible solution, someone who is hurting you for no reason may not respond well to being questioned about it.
    If you’d like to discuss how this meeting might go or to practice talking to her with someone here, we want to invite you to give us a call. We’re also here to support you in this difficult time. Please feel free to reach us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or Live Chat right here on this site. If you feel like you’re in danger, please call 911.
    Keep safe,
    NRS

    i live with my grandmother and I'm 14. Everyday I come home from school and she's in a bad mood. I ask her what's wrong and she just doesn't reply so I just leave her alone. She then proceeded to scream at me for not doing something right then when I try to fix it she says leave it alone so I do. However sometimes out of rage she will hit me . I didn't think it was a big deal until it started hurting more and more. Recently she hit me on the face and it started to bleed. I don't want to get her in trouble I just want to know if there is a way I can talk to her. It doesn't just hurt physically but also mentally . She's threatened to kick me out multiple times. All I want to know is if there is some way I can talk to her so she knows how I feel. I would rather her take something away if I do something wrong, however I feel that I don't really do anything wrong it's mostly just me getting mad when she hits me for no reason. Please help

    I dont know if im being abused or not and I dont want to be removed from my home and I dont want my parents taken away. My mom has punched me in my face and has given me a black eye with that punch. My mom has also socked me in my stomache. She has also thrown high heels and other shoes at me. One time, she thrown a shoe at me and made my lip start to bleed. My lip was bruised and puffy. My dad, when I was younger I remember he would pick me up from school and put his hands down my shirt and touch my private parts when he was driving back home. I thought this was just a way of showing love like giving somebody a hug. My dad also is always touching me and my sisters butts. This is very uncomfortable and Ive told him millions of times to stop.

    I need help. I dont know what to do, but I dont want to go to foster homes and stuff like that. Please help

    Hi,

    Thanks so much for taking the time to reach out to us tonight. We're so sorry to hear that your mom punched you in the shoulder. Getting hit is definitely not okay. We don't want to define what abuse is for you, so for more information on child abuse you can reach out to the National Child Abuse Hotline at 1800-422-4453, or you can go to their website which is childhelp.org. They can really help you and talk to you about what abuse is, what is looks like, and what your next steps should be.

    We wish you the best of luck with everything!
