    moved out of moms

    i am 15 and live in canada, and i just moved out of my moms house. she divorced my stepdad a year ago, and cheated on him to, and now we live with her 23 year old boyfriend. she makes me do almost all of the chores, and treats my brothers and sister better then me, and i think its because i was just an accident she had when she was 18. i know she still cares for me i think. the only problem now is that we just had a big fight (she punched me in the face, among other things) and she would not let me grab my computer or cellphone to take to my dads. I grabbed my jacket and biked there, and have my laptop here. I still want to have a positive relathioship with my mom, and im worried about my brother and sister and 2 dogs. i dont know what to do and whether i should contact her, and with christmas coming up, i dont know if i want to be with her on that day, if we havent sorted things out by then. I have read her phone texts and seen all the stuff she does, including showing up at 1 in the morning drunk out of her mind after i put my siblings to bed. she does nothing to help around the house all day, and procastinates on shopping and stuff like that. I still love my mom just living with her in the past year has been somewhat unbearable. i wanna just run away from home and go explore the world, ive wanted to for years. help me pls

      Title: Re: moved out of moms

      Hello,

      Thank you for reaching out to us for help. It sounds like you are going through a very difficult time right now, and we are sorry to hear that you feel worried for your siblings and your dogs. That must be really stressful. It is understandable that you are looking for a way out of this situation. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can.

      It sounds like your mom puts a lot of responsibility on you to take care of your siblings, but you are also trying to find a way to fix your relationship with your mom. It seems like you really want to see things change and for your mom to step up. You mentioned that you are very conflicted about how to approach the situation. How does your dad feel about the situation? It seems like you already left the house and are staying with your dad, but you’re unsure of whether you should return. We are not here to tell you what to do, because you know your situation best, but we can help by talking about options available to you specific to your life and your current situation.

      You also said that your mom punched you in the face. No one deserves to be treated that way regardless of whether she was upset with you. That type of behavior is not okay. If you are considering reporting this the Child Protective Services, you may find the organization Child Help USA useful. They serve the Unites States as well as Canada).
      https://www.childhelp.org/hotline/. We would also be happy to talk to you in more detail about this option if you decide to call us.

          RE:Mom swearing at me and grabbing me

          Thank you for contacting us at the National Runaway Safeline. We are sorry to hear that things have been so hard for you. You don’t deserve to be treated like that. It takes great courage to reach out for help, and we are glad you contacted us.
          It sounds like your mom has hurt you in the past and has been verbally abusing you. If you are interested, you could call Child Help USA at 1-800-422-4453 and they can help you file an abuse report. If you are ever in situation where you feel your mom is going to hurt you, you can always consider calling 911. Have you talked to your dad about how your mom has been treating you? We understand that it can be really hard to talk to others about what has been going on. Your dad could help you file a police report, or provide support in this situation. It sounds like you are going through a lot of emotional stress as well. Many times talking to someone can be helpful. Have you talked to a therapist? If you call us at our 24 hour confidential hotline at 1-800-786-2929 or live chat with us from 4:30 PM CST – 11:30 PM CST we can listen to your story, and look up some counseling resources in your area.

          We hope things get better for you and we wish you good luck.

          Best,

                from dad's to moms

                I live with my dad. I'm 14 years old I will be 15 in may. I'm tired of living here.. I have wanted to move out for the past 3 years. I go to my moms every Friday. My dad is supposed to come pick me up in Sundays at my moms house. But that never happens anymore. We've never really been physically or sexually abused. But he will call us names such as "*******" "mistakes" etc. I don't know who to talk to. I want to live without my mom I can't take it anymore. Could you tell me who I should talk to? I've told my mom and she wants to take him to court bht since he's never really done anything "illegal" or "abusive" to any of us (meaning me my 2 half sisters and his girlfriend's 3 kids) we have 8 people in this house. But I just can't take it anymore I'm miserable do please help😭😭😭😭😭😭

                  Re: from dad's to moms

                  Hi there,

                  Thank you for contacting us through our online forum. It sounds like you’re going through a lot at home. No one has the right to call you names. Often times verbal abuse can be just as hurtful as physical abuse. If you are unsure whether any of your dad’s behavior would be considered abuse, the organization Child Help USA might be able to talk about that with you in more detail: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. You can reach them at 1-800-422-4453 if you have more questions about reporting.

                  It’s great that you find your mom to be supportive and that she’s doing what she can on her part to limit the time that you are with your dad. If your mom is able to have more custody rights over you and your siblings, that might be a good route to go. We can look up low cost legal resources if you or your mom wanted to speak with a legal expert. You would just need to contact us directly so that we can look that up for you.

                  It’s understandable that you would be really frustrated with this living arrangement and confused by your dad’s actions, especially with your dad often times not picking you up from your mom’s home. We’re glad that you thought to reach out to us and hope that some of these ideas are helpful. If you would like to keep talking about your situation in more detail, we would be happy to discuss with you potential options.

                  Best of luck,

                          Thank you for using our bulletin service.

                          Arguing with your mom all the time sounds like a super stressful home life. We are sorry that you do not like your dad and cannot turn to him. It sounds like you have already made up your mind about leaving home. One thing to consider is how your sister would feel if you did leave? We encourage you to continue looking into the situation, making sure you know as much as possible about the safety of where you are staying, what you will do for money, whether you will be able to continue your education, etc.
                          We are not here to tell you what to do but we are here to try to provide you with support and resources so that if you do decide to leave home, you are doing it intelligently and safely. We here at NRS have a database of resources at our disposal, which allows us to search for shelters, counselors, and other options. If you want, we can access those resources and provide you with some referrals just give us a call.

                          Feel free to give us a call anytime at 1-800 RUNAWAY

                            Moms house to dads house

                            I am 16 currently, but once I turn 18 i can legally choose where I want to live right? I want to go live with my dad. My mom says that I'm not allowed to move out until I have finished my 4 years of college. But I can't stand living in this horrible house any longer. My stepfather is sexist. My mom can't stand up for herself or me and my sisters. I've threatened suicide and I've even cut a few times. My mom's house is not a good place for me to live. I can not stand to live there until I'm 21. I can barely stand it now for the past 3 years that they have been married. What can I do? What are my legal options?

                              Re: Moms house to dads house

                              Hello There!

                              Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It is a great first step to finding the help and information that you need. It sounds like you are in a difficult situation and are unhappy living with your mother and stepfather. We are not legal experts here, but typically in most states 18 is considered to be an adult. In this case you would not need permission to leave home. Going to college or finishing school has no effect on being able to move out nor is going to college mandatory, although this is a great thing to do for a brighter future. Leaving prior to being 18 is where you would need permission to leave home in anyway.

                              You mentioned threatening suicide and cutting. These are very serious and permanent decisions to make. Both of these options would not only hurt your loved ones, but it hurts you first and foremost. Reaching out to family, freinds, teachers, to lean on when things get difficult can be a way of coping as well. If you ever need someone to talk to or feel like self-harming you can always call us at 1800-RUNAWAY or National Suicide Hotline at 1800-273-TALK

                              We hope this was helpful,
                              Stay Safe. Stay Strong,
