    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. Any type of abuse is unacceptable. If you wish to make an abuse report you can call The Child Helpline at: 1800-422-4453. We know that sometimes making abuse reports can be scary if you would like help in making a report you can always call us and we would be glad to help. You do not deserve to be called those names but just know that is not about you. When your parents say those things about you it’s about them maybe they are going through a difficult time or maybe they are dealing with insecurities. You could consider talking to a school counselor about what is going on sometimes talking to an unbiased person can help us feel better.
    You mentioned that you need to get away. Emancipation is an option, but you are right it does take anywhere from 6 months to a year. If you would like to know more about the emancipation process you can call us and we can provide you with legal aid resources and tell you more about the process in your state. Another option may be to ask your parents if you could stay at a friends or family members house, if they give you consent than it would be legal for you to leave before turning 18.
    We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to talk more please feel free to give us a call we are here 24/7. Best of luck and please stay strong!

    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 seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
    While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
    We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).
    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
    Be safe,

    Hi,
    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline.

    It sounds like you are in a tough situation and may be looking for some options to help cope with everything.
    We understand how difficult it must have been to write about what has been happening to you.
    You are very brave for doing so. Good for you.
    NRS would like you to know we are here to support you at your time of need.

    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 seek emergency assistance immediately.

    Since it sounds like you are located in a country outside of the USA, you can use this link to find a youth helpline in or around your country: http://www.childhelplineinternationa...where-we-work/

    We hope that by reaching out to a local resource, you are able to get the support you need from an organization that understands the laws and circumstances that affect youth in your country.

    Take care,
    NRS

    Hello,
    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline.

    It’s too bad that your stepmom treats you as poorly as she says, you don’t deserve the mistreated or put down. This has probably been a most challenging time for you but in spite of her behavior towards you, you have seem to remain quite strong. Good for you. It is a testament of your strength that you are seeking help to cope with the situation.
    You should not be put in the middle of her and your dad’s relationship his behavior is not your burden to carry. It is unfair for anyone to take their anger out on you.

    Things sound like they have been pretty frustrating for you but we want you to know we are here to support you during this difficult time. Sometimes people can say some pretty mean things but it can be more of a reflection on their personality not yours. Your feelings matter. You matter
    Let us know how we might help. If you would like to speak more about your situation, please contact us at 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or www.1800runaway.org (Live Chat).

    You might also consider seeking ways to cope, Maybe talking with friends or someone you feel close to.
    Sometimes talking things out can help develop ideas to options not thought of before.

    We look forward to hearing from you.

    Take care,
    NRS

    I don't know what to do...

    Hi I live in Washington and I'm 14. My dad and step mom fight all the time and it gets to the point where the cops have come. The biggest problem is my step mom because she always to control all of my choices and doesn't let me have a life. She always puts me down and just today she called me dumb. She also yells at me for no reason and expects too much out of me and treats me unfairly. She has also called me numerous of names in the past, mostly because she is jealous of my biological mom because my dad cheats on her so she takes her anger out on me because I'm her son. She takes my phone away because I was face timing a friend not even a girlfriend which she doesn't allow me to have unless there white and until I'm 18. She also has a strict phone policy for me only, I can't charge my phone in my room but my other brothers can. She always puts me down to the point I feel like a waste of space in this world and sometimes I thought about ending it all. She also doesn't let me hang around my friends a lot of the time because she don't like them or she just says no because I have stuff to do and she lies straight to my face. Please help me I'm still too young to work so I can't move out and I have no money to do anything and I can't make it out of this alone, I need help from you and a person I can call for comfort and pour my love to.
