    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.

    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

    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.

    Hello there -

    Thank you for reaching out to us here on out public platform. It's clear from your post that you are thinking about trying to get emancipated and become independent from your family. If you were looking into emancipation we can give you some general knowledge of that process, but we are not legal experts. Those laws regarding emancipation are different in every state and not every state even recognizes emancipation, so we can’t tell you exactly how it works just that you have to be 16 years or older to even file. What we know is that getting emancipated by the court is a process that does take a while. There also needs to be proof that the youth is able to support him or herself on their own. Other requirements sometime indicate that they have had to have lived independently from their parents for a certain amount of time or that they don’t mind if you move out, wishes to be free from parental control, has an acceptable plan for independent living, and be able to manage their own financial affairs. So it doesn't look like there is going to be a fast track to getting emancipated or website because it does go through the court system and you will have to wait for a judge to see you and hear your case.

    For more information about your situation and to check and see if emancipation is an option for your city and state, but please reach out to us here on our 24 hour hotline.

    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. You should be able to live in a home where you feel safe and secure and where your thoughts and feelings are acknowledged and taken seriously.

    You mentioned some things about your mom and dad grab you and throw you around. This raises some concern for your safety and well-being. Absolutely no one deserves to be abused like this. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, you can reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance. You mentioned that you are still in a great deal of pain; we highly encourage you to seek medical attention immediately for these injuries. We want you to know that you have the right to report what has been happening. If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. You can also tell your therapist or any school personnel about the abuse and they can help you file a report as well. If you'd like you can call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY and we can help you file a report if that’s the route you are considering. It may also be a good idea to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.

    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

    I am 17 and live in Minnesota. I've always hated my mom for her belittling, attacking, controlling, and condescending me. She is always finding ways to make me feel horrible and to yell at me. I do very well in school and am a generally good kid who doesn't do drugs or disobey any of her rules. She is constantly being cruel to me. I've tried to talk to her about several times, especially this year, as it's been much worse since my brother went off to college.

    Today, I tried to talk to her about how I feel when she treats me like this, even using a template my therapist gave me (my mother sent me to therapy to "fix" me because I'm "crazy" according to her). My mother didn't listen, so I wrote out what I was saying and she barely glanced at it before making fun of me for writing it. My dad, who is occasionally a more neutral, calm force, read it. Neither of them did anything though, and she continued to treat me horribly immediately after putting down the paper. I tried to talk to her about it civilly at first. When that didn't work, I sat in front of the TV when my parents were watching to have a conversation and get somewhere with our relationship. My mom first tried to yank me up and throw me around, but I'm stronger than her so I remained sitting. My dad, who is six feet tall and 160 pounds (I'm 110 pounds 5'7"), then grabbed me and threw me around. He has done this before plenty of times. He put me in a headlock and pushed me directly into the ground; my back cracked severely and loudly and he tried to drag me upstairs. I couldn't breathe for some reason and my back felt the worse pain I've ever felt. I don't know what happened, but I could barely make it to my room and I still can't breathe in deeply or move because my back hurts too much.

    I would like to get out of this house or at least get my parents to listen to me and not hurt me but I don't know how.

    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. That sounds so stressful and hurtful to have your step mother treating you that way and affecting your father’s view of you. It sounds like you’ve been going through such a tough time, and we are here to support you and help you in any way we can.

    We want you to know that no one deserves to be abused, and you should not have to go through that. If you haven’t already, you could consider reporting the abuse you’ve been experiencing. If you want more information about abuse reporting or if you want to file a report, you could call Child Help at 1-800-422-4453 or you could call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929) or chat with us online. We also want you to know that if you ever feel that you are in danger, you could call 911 for immediate help.

    If you haven’t already, you could consider reaching out to a trusted adult, relative, worker/teacher/counselor at your school for help and support. You could also consider talking to your parents about how you’ve been feeling or having another trusted adult help you talk with them. Just so you’re aware, we have a conference calling service here where we could help mediate a conversation between you and your parents.

    We can’t tell you exactly what to do in your situation, but we are definitely here to support you, talk with you about what’s going on and help you explore your options. If you want to talk with someone more about this, you can call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929) or chat with us online.

    It sounds like all of your struggles are making you consider leaving home. If you do decide to leave home, you could consider thinking about ways to make sure you stay safe. You could explore ways you would pay for food, shelter, clothing and other necessary things. You could think about how long you would stay away, where you would stay, and what things would be like when you return. You could consider what you would do if you felt that you were in danger or had an emergency.

    There are also many resources that could help you with anything else you may need. If you want to talk more about what’s been going on, or if you would like more information about resources, you can call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929) or chat with us online.

    Again, thank you for contacting us. It sounds like you’ve been going through a really hard time, but you’ve shown a lot of strength by working through these challenges and reaching out for help. If you ever need anything in the future, please feel free to call us or chat with us online. We’re always here to listen and here to help.
