  • Help me

    Yeah I can’t take this s*** any more. My dad and mom are emotional abusing me. They call me names and there just breaking me down. I want to runaway. I can’t take it anymore. The name-calling it hurts. Every night I would cry my self to sleep. All I want is love. All they give is pain. My father makes fun of me. He loves imitating me and mocking me. Then he bust out laughing. I want to take a stand I hate them! The last ********ing time he said he loved was back in 08. I have no friends because I am home schooled. He is really nosy. What should I do?

    Re: Help me

    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Switchboard during this difficult time. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is reach out and talk to someone about what is going on; we’re glad that you reached out to us and hopefully we will be able to assist you.

    You said that your parents are emotionally abusing toward you. That must be very difficult for you, especially since you are home schooled. It sounds like you aren’t getting the respect and safety that everyone deserves. Have you told anyone else about this? It must be hard to have your dad make fun of you when all you want from him is love. You said that the last time he said he loved you was in 2008; what has changed since then that made him change how he acted toward you?

    You also mentioned that you were thinking about running away. If you did choose to do this, where would you go? How would you get there and how would you survive? You said that you didn’t have any friends because you were home schooled but is there someone in your neighborhood or another family member close by that you could stay with for a little while? If there is not, you can call us and we can try to help you locate an emergency youth shelter nearby.

    We here at NRS can’t tell you what you should or shouldn’t do. What we can do is help you to discuss your options (i.e. finding shelter, doing a conference call with your parents) and advocate for you if you need help calling anyone to use their resources. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-RUNAWAY and would like to hear from you to further talk about what is going on in your life. We wish you the best of luck and look forward to hearing from you.

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
