    To me my life basically sucks period. My home life is pretty much terriable my mom seems like she is always trying to pick a fight with me and always takes things out on me my dad is a man i cant stand and dont like to call dad and he causes almost all of my problems hes abuseing towards me in alot of ways and i hate it its sick. My mom knows that my dad is abuseing towards me and basically gave him permission to be like that. Ive tried getting help with this and it never seems to work ive talked to school conclers and everything and it just gets to were my mom tells them im lieing and i am not......i dont want to get the cops invloved because im scared it will make the sitiuation worse.

    Re: I dont know what to do anymore.

    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Switchboard. It sounds like you are going through a very difficult time right now and hopefully we will be able to help you out.

    It sounds like you don’t have a good relationship with your parents and that can be very difficult, especially if you are experiencing a form of abuse. Everyone deserves the right to feel safe when they are at home and it sounds as if you do not feel that way. When you say that your dad is abusing you in a lot of ways, what do you mean by that? You also said that he causes all of your problems; what kinds of problems has he caused?

    We are sorry to hear that you have reached out before and have not gotten help. It’s hard when you try to tell people what is going on and someone tells them you are lying. When you spoke with your school counselor, what did they say? Did they file a report for you?

    Getting the police involved can be pretty scary but they can also help you. Why do you think that the situation will get worse if you call them? If you don’t want to call the police, there are other places that you can call and they may be able to help you.

    One of them is Justice for Children; they can help you come up with a plan to keep yourself safe and help you find safe places to go. There phone number is 1-800-733-0059 and the website is If you don’t feel safe calling them from home, they have an 800 number so you would be able to call them for free from any payphone. Unfortunately, they are not 24 hours and are only available from 8:00 AM-5:00 PM.

    Another place is Childhelp USA. They are counselors who can answer any questions about abuse and how you can report it. They can also help you find somewhere safe to go. They are available 24 hours a day and can be reached at 1-800-422-4453 or on the internet at

    You can also call us here if you need assistance in finding somewhere safe to go. We are available 24 hours a day and we are completely confidential and anonymous. We aren’t counselors or therapists so we can’t give you any advice and we can’t tell you what to do but we can discuss your options with you. We can also help you to file an abuse report if that is something you want to do.

    It’s good that you have a friend to help you out; it sounds like she really cares about you. It’s hard that you finally feel safe at your friend’s house and then you have to return home. Does your friend know what’s going on?

    Remember, we are here 24 hours a day if you have any other questions. You can reach us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. Good luck with everything and we 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.
