    Thanks for reaching out. We know it takes courage to know when you need additional help. It sounds like your mom isn’t taking your concern seriously, which can be upsetting. If there’s another trusted adult, such as a teacher or school counselor, it may help to talk to them and discuss your concern. Your teacher may also be able to provide additional help that would allow you to do better in school.

    Your mother should not be hitting you. You don’t deserve to be treated that way. If you feel that your safety is in danger, you can file a report with your local child protective services or, if it’s an emergency, call 911. If this is something that you’re interested in doing, we can help support you through the process. Child Help, a child abuse hotline, also can support you if you’d like to file a report. They can be reached at 1-800-422-4453 or www.childhelp.org.

    Depending on your location, there may be additional resources available, and we offer conference calling if you want extra support to talk to her again. Please feel free to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or live chat at 1800runaway.org. We’re here 24/7. Best of luck!
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
