  • I dont know if im ok

    I am only 12 years old and Im not sure if its abuse or not. My own sister hits me! My dad calls me a dumbass and stupid and my mom said I am untrusted in this household. I am stuck as the maid of the house and my mom complains that she has to do the all the work when at times im cleaning for hours. I feel left out of the family and like a slave. I feel just plain unwanted and unloved. I want to run away but is it needed in this situation?

    Thanks for writing us here at the National Runaway Switchboard. This all sounds like it is very hard for you, and we are so sorry that you are going though this. It really must be a lot for you to handle. Is there anyone you feel you can talk to about all of this? Does anyone in your life make you feel comforted after your family makes you feel bad? Is there any way that you can talk to a counselor at school perhaps?
    We certainly hope there is something that makes you feel better in your times of pain. As far as your question about abuse goes, we cannot say one way or another right now. If you would like to talk more about this with us please call us here at the National Runaway Switchboard. We will try to help you figure out any options you may have and/or if necessary we can help you file an abuse report if that is something that you feel you would like to do. We are not here to force anything on you, but only to help.
    Do you have any extracurricular activities that you participate in? Or through a Park District or anything of that nature to keep you out of the house and doing something you enjoy? This is also something we can talk about if you decide to call. We cannot tell you if you should run away, this is only something you can decide. But if you call us we can help you figure out if this is something you really want to do. Again, we are very glad that you contacted us here, and will do anything we can to help. Please call us here at 1-800-RUNAWAY so we can talk to you about what is going on. We are available 24/7 and are confidential and anonymous. If need be you can also call us toll-free from any payphone.
    Good luck and take care,
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
