    Hi, I’m 15 and live in Colorado. I need to move out. I have a lot of mental health issues and living with my parents makes everything significantly worse. My mom yells at me all the time and makes me feel like a burden. Fights are frequent and I am constantly on edge at home. I dread going home and want to leave ASAP.

    Hello There,
    Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline we are here to help and here to listen. We are not legal experts but we will do our best to answer your questions. We are sorry your friend is being abused, that can be really scary situation to be involved in. One option your friend can consider is to call The Child Help Hotline at 1800-422-4453, and make a report. We know that making a report can be scary if your friend would like our help they can call us at any time. Because your friend is a minor if she were to leave home without permission she could be considered as a runway. If the police found her they would most likely bring her back home if they deemed it safe for her to return home. If they thought it was not safe they may find an alternate living arrangement.
    We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore options more please give us a call we are here 24/7 to listen and provide support. We wish you and your friend the best of luck.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us today at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you’ve been having a hard time at home with your dad and step-mom at home. You mentioned being slapped and we wanted to offer the option to report that behavior to Child Help USA 1-800-422-4453 www.childhelp.org which is an organization that helps protect minors from being harmed.

    You already shared so much of your situation with us, but sometimes it can be helpful to further vent about what is going on. It can be beneficial to think about who your support system is in a time like this, whether it be friends or other family members. As an addition resource, the website https://teenlineonline.org/ can be good if you are wishing to speak to other teens about what is going on via chat. You also mentioned wanting to live with your grandma, is that something you have discussed with her or your parents to see if they can help?

    If you would like to discuss your situation further, please do not hesitate to reach out to us here at 1-800-RUNAWAY. If you are unavailable to call in, you can chat with us online during our chat hours. We can discuss your options and what you might want to do moving forward, as well as giving you more space to talk about what’s going on. We can also help you brainstorm ways to cope with this tough situation as well as possibly link you up to resources. Again, we want to support you so feel free to reach out to us whenever.

    Take Care,
    NRS

    Hi there,

    You mentioned wanting to know how you can leave home before turning 18. The easiest way to leave home is with your mom’s permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your mom. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. 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. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.

    Please reach out soon so that we may offer support and resources to you. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

    Be safe,

    NRS

    Hi there,
    Thank you for reaching out to us NRS. We understand it takes great courage to reach out for help.

    We are sorry that things have been so difficult. It sounds like you are thinking about leaving home. Leaving home can be hard and it can be helpful to think about where you might stay for food, rent, or other living expenses. It can be unsafe to outside on many situations. We are not legal experts however if you are to leave home there is a chance that if your parents are to file a police report the police can bring you back home and whoever you are staying with could be charged with harboring a runaway.
    Talking to family members, friends or school counselor can be helpful in many cases. Family counseling can be helpful in many situations. You could contact SAMHSA at 1-800-422-4453 for any counseling resources. We also offer a conference call service where you could call us and we can conference call with your parents and help come to a common ground.

    We are here to support you through this hard time, listen to you and explore options. You can call us at 1-800-786-2929 or live chat with us at www.1800runaway.org and click chat. We wish you the best and hope to hear from you soon.
    Best,

    Hello,
    Thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

    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 are having a tough time coping with living in your parent’s home. We understand that things can become so stressful that it’s hard to know just what you can do about it.18 years old is generally the age that an individual may leave home without permission from their parent or legal guardian.
    We are not legal experts here but we can speak in general terms. If you are under 18 and leave home without permission, your parent/guardian may file a runaway report with the police.
    Also you might check with your local police department to inquire about the runaway laws in your state or if someone that moves out of their parent or guardian’s home at 17 without permission would they be considered a runaway and forced to return home.

    It sounds like you would like to stay with your grandparent’s.
    One thing you might consider is trying to come up with a plan and possibly asking your grandparent’s to speak with your parents about the possibility of you staying with them.
    What would the time frame look like in regards to long term or short term? Immediate or after graduation? It is also important to practice self-care. You mentioned that the situation has you feeling depressed and sleep deprived. Counseling may be an option to help sort things out and come up with a coping plan. You did a great job by reaching out today.

    NRS is here to listen and here to help and be supportive.
    If you would like to talk more about your situation we are here to listen and here to help.
    To speak with someone on our crisis or chat line contact 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or www.1800runaway.org

    We look forward to hearing from you.

    Take care,
    NRS

    Hi I'm Alyah I'm 16 going on 17, I'm very depressed and stressed living in my parents’ house. I'm in an alternative school graduating early, I need a job but my parents won’t take me to get one and won’t drive me to work. They refuse to help me get my license, and I can never even talk to them about anything. I'm constantly depressed I don’t get any sleep, I have to go to my friend’s house to even get any sleep. Can I move into my grandparents’ house if my parents do not give me permission? Or is there any way for me to leave and move in with another adult family member?

    Hello,
    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). It sounds like you are not being treated right at home and you would like to know if you can move in with a friend. We are not legal experts but generally speaking a person is not considered an adult until they are 18in most states. (Nebraska 19, Alabama 20, Mississippi 21) This means that their guardians are legally responsible for them. So the parent is required by law to provide for the youth (food, shelter, school, etc.) If they fail to do so then they can face legal consequences. This also means that the youth cannot live anywhere else without parents’ consent. There are exceptions to this rule but those include getting the court involved such as emancipation or Child Protective Services removing the parent’s rights.
    It is understandable that you would want to leave a pace where you are being verbally abused. We want you to know that you do have the right to make a report with Child Protective Services. Child Help USA is an information and referral line that can connect you with your local CPS abuse hotline. That number is 1-800-422-4453. If you ever felt like making a report or needed help, we are here to assist with that. We understand that making an abuse report can be intimidating so if you like we can call together to provide support.
    If you need help with anything else or would just like to talk about your situation we are here for you. Please do not hesitate to give us a call anytime 1-800-786-2929
    Best wishes,
    NRS

    We're glad you reached out to us. We'll try to help. It's unfortunate that your mother takes out her anger on you. You don't deserve to be treated harshly. It's understandable that you would want to move out. You might want to look into moving in with a family member or friend. We can provide you information on shelters if you prefer. You can always call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY to talk more about the situation and look into options. You deserve to live in a safe and loving environment.
