    Hello, I’m currently in a house hold we’re it’s pretty much hell. My grandma has custody of me bud she been deciding, badly. She mentally insane, plus she can’t walk to the bathroom on her own she need my siblings help, they quit litterly wipe her butt. Not to add she doesn’t even remember our names, I know they want me to help since I’m 15 now, but I don’t wanna be hit by her or be covered in human poop. I don’t wanna end up like my siblings, I don’t wanna be her care taker, I don’t wanna like in this hone to do it, if I can’t leave at 15 I wanna leave the minute I turn 18. Oh also, technically her temporary custody experience years ago idk how I’m still legally living here, technically my mom has custody but I haven’t seen her since I was 7 so I don’t think she going to pop in.

    Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like things are awful at home with your grandmother's physical challenges and the responsibility on you and your siblings to take care of her. It doesn't sound fair at all.

    We hope you can think of someone that you trust to talk to about this. Your state or county may have an agency that assists senior citizens with help in cases where they need help. Maybe you can google it, or you can reach out to us and you can ask us to do it too. You can also reach out to your states Child Abuse Hotline so they can investigate and see that you and the other children need help.
    You can reach out to us 24/7 and we can help you file an abuse report (technically it sounds more like neglect) so that your grandma and you might be able to get the help you deserve.
    You can chat us through this website or call our hotline at 1-800-786-2929 (1-800-RUNAWAY)
    We truly hope to hear from you soon.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.

        Hi, we're thankful you reached out for help. It is a very important step in improving your circumstances, and it takes a lot of courage.

        It sounds like your hasn't been treating you with total kindness, and the fact that he has been making you cry and then calling you names instead of trying to make you feel better can feel both frustrating, angering, and sad. Your wellbeing matters, and we are here to help as best we can. You were right to say that everyone makes mistakes and no one is perfect, and you deserve to feel you have the space to make mistakes and to learn and grow safely.

        If you live chat us at or call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY we can discuss more of the details of your situation and provide more specific solutions, or we can just listen if you need someone to talk to.
