      • I need some help

        My step dad smokes weed and I told him multiple times I had an issue with it. He continues to do it and my family doesn't care. I wanted to know if that is a suitable cause for me to get emancipated.

          Hi there, thanks for reaching out today. That has to be frustrating that your step dad smokes weed, and does not listen when you tell him about how you feel. That has to be hard to deal with.

          So emancipation is the court process of becoming a legal adult that usually requires fees and proof of income to show the judge that you are able to support yourself. So your step dad smoking weed might not be grounds for emancipation. However, if he is smoking at your home and it is negatively affecting you, you do have the right to report it to Child Protective Services. It is hard to say what could happen if you were to report that, to learn about what could happen you might reach out to the expert child advocates at Child Help 1-800-422-4453.

          If you would like to talk more about your situation and help with brainstorming your options please do not hesitate to call or chat us: 1-800-RUNAWAY; www.1800runaway.org.

          Best,

          NRS

      • My mother is an immigrant and she thinks I have to follow every rule by the book. My father just instigates our fights and arguments and I really hate them both. They physically beat me and I hate them with all my heart. I'm this close to doing something bad... I'm really at my breaking point.

          Hey there,

          Thanks so much for contacting us, it takes a lot of courage to reach out and share your story. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension. Running away is a big decision and it can be very stressful to figure out what you want to do.

          We aren’t legal experts here at NRS, but generally speaking, if you do opt to leave your home your parents can file a runaway report, which is essentially a missing person report. Running away is a status offense; this means that it isn’t illegal, but it’s something you can’t do while still a minor. If a runaway report is filed and you are located by the authorities you will most likely be returned to your parents.

          It’s great to hear that your boyfriend supports you. If you go to stay at his house without prior permission from your parents, your boyfriend could be charged with harboring a runaway, which is a misdemeanor. Penalties for harboring a runaway vary from state to state, police officer to officer, and how your parents view the situation.

          If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

          All the best,
          NRS

      • So what if I run away and say I don’t want to live in this house will I be able to not go away then

      • my parents are so annoying i cant ever go take a walk by myself because “i’m 14”. i ask them if i can go to a summer camp but they deny it automatically because they don’t have the money for it. i’ve also contacted other relatives that i can see but my parents scared them away because them don’t like them, i feel stuck in my house and i can’t confront them about it because i know they will get mad and take all my privileges away for no reason

          Hello There,
          Thank you for contacting The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a really difficult time right now. Not being able to do things can be frustrating. It may be that your parents care about you and are worried about your safety. You could try talking with your parents and seeing if they will come up with an agreement, maybe letting you walk outside for 5 minutes opposed to not at all. At NRS we offer conference calling where if you call us we can call out to your parents and have a conference call. A conference call allows you to be heard and we are there to provide support.
          We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. We wish you the best of luck!

          Thank you for contacting The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a difficult time right now. Any type of abuse is not acceptable and you do not deserve that. You can always make an abuse report by calling Child Help at: 1800-422-4453.

One option could be to write down everything your mother is doing and the dates that this is happening. Another option is to speak to a school counselor about what is going on, and they may be able to provide you with resources.
          We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore your options please give us a call. Please stay strong you are not alone!

          Hello There,

          Thank you for contacting The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a pretty difficult time right now. It is great that you seem to have a plan, but you are right in general in most states the legal age to leave home is 18 years old. If you were to leave and the police were to find you they most likely would bring you back home. If you need a safe place to go you can call us and we can help you look up shelters. You can also consider talking to a school counselor about what is going on, they may be able to help you explore options.
          We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any more questions or would like to explore options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support.

If you do decide to leave home and need somewhere safe to stay you can always call us and we can help you look for shelters or other resources.

          We are not legal experts but if you were to leave home without permission your legal guardian could file a runaway report. If the police were to find you they most likely would bring you back home.
          One option to consider is to talk with your school counselor about what is going on in your life. Sometimes it helps to have a person to vent too and have support. Also you could see if any family members or friends would allow you to stay with them for a few days.
          We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore options please give us a call. We are here to help and here to listen 24/7. Best of luck to you!
