    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.

    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 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. You can also always call your local police and they would be able to help with making a report.
    We would be unable to send you a device to record what is going on but there may be some options. 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 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!

    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

    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

    Hi there,
    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now and you mentioned being harmed. We’re sorry you’re going through this. You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. You may also be able to report any mistreatment to CPS. Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed. It may also be a good place to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.
    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. You are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
    If you would like to talk more in detail please chat soon through our website www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button) if you are unable to call in. We unfortunately cannot give advice as we are non-directive. You know your situation best
    We hope to hear from you soon.
