    I currently live with my mom in a house with two other people. They're older. They're not part of our family. My mom and I share a room and a bed. She gets so mad at me when I'm not home but I just feel so empty and worthless. I can't do anything right. My mom says horrible things to me that hurt really bad. I honestly just don't know what do to anymore.

    Thank you for reaching out to us and telling us about what’s going on. It sounds like you have a lot going on right now and it was very brave of you to contact us. Sometimes telling someone about things that are going on can be incredibly difficult and scary; it’s great that you have told us.

    We are sorry to hear about everything that is going on right now and that your relationship with mom is so stressful for you. It also sounds like you have a lot going on with school and helping to take care of the baby. It also sounds like you are very involved with your church but would like to lessen that responsibility a little bit but when you mention it to your mom, it seems like she doesn’t listen. You said that your dad doesn’t really get involved in things with your mom; have you talked with him about how you are feeling? He may be able to help you brainstorm some ideas of how to talk with your mom about what you are feeling.

    You mentioned that you are thinking of leaving home when you turn 18 which is going to be in 4 months. Do you know where you may go or how you would survive? If you go to our website, there is a list of questions and suggestions that may be able to help you come up with some ideas (http://www.1800runaway.org/Should-I-Run-Away/).

    Here at the National Runaway Safeline, we are a confidential and anonymous crisis line for youth. You can reach us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) if you would like to talk more about what’s going on or to explore resources that may be available to you. You can also chat with us from 4:30 PM-11:30 PM (CST), 7 days a week; that can be found on our website (www.1800runaway.org).

    We look forward to hearing from you and wish you the best of luck!

    I'm 17 and I can't stand living in this house anymore!

    I'm 17 and a high school senior. My mom just recently had a baby, he's 3 months now. Lately in this house everything is argument. It all started because I did not want to go to church anymore. I told her that I did not want to preach anymore or go on Wednesdays night. If anything I would just go on Sundays. I'll be 18 in 4 months but it seems like the older I got the more restrictions I got from my mother. I live with both parents. My dad doesn't really get involved with the situation. He just tells me to not become another statistic and to finish my education. That is what I plan on doing. I am not a bad kid. I come home from school and help her with the baby. I don't mind helping because as her daughter I know that it is my responsibility to help. But my mom takes it to a whole new level. I come home lets say about 4pm and I help her till 9pm. Then I shower and start my homework about 10- 10:30. I got to sleep about 1 or 2 am. On weekends she doesn't let me go out unless I preach and not even that. She doesn't let me go out period. She asks me who I will be with, where I'm going, what exactly will I do, etc. If I go out its only for like 3 hours. She tells me she gives me "space" but I don't see it. She took the lock off my door and replaced it with one that doesn't have a lock. The reason for that was because she walked in my room one day and she thought I was doing some type of drug because I was extremely pale with purple lips. Turns out I was really sick and I wasn't aware of it. Anyways, I currently have a boyfriend (if she found out she would flip!) My dad met him and he likes him. My mom on the other hand wants me to marry someone from church. But during the summer she accused me of being a lesbian for the simple fact that my best friend slept over the house for a couple days. Like where else was she supposed to sleep!? After that incident I never brought my friend over again. My mom is really judgmental. She basis herself off looks. If they don't look "innocent" I can't be friends with them. I don't understand her. She tells me that she's protecting me from the world. But really she's just creating a child who has a lot of secrets. Strict parents create sneaky kids and that is what I have become. I want to move out when I turn 18 but I know that it'll turn into a big argument. I don't know what to do. There is so much more to this story but I need someone to talk to.
