  • I’m 16 and live in Arkansas I want to leave my grandmother house and live my my boyfriend and his family because I and always locked up in this house and can’t go anywhere and I can’t have friends over. She always threatens me because I am always on the computer but she won’t let me go out side. She favors my little sister over me and when I try to talk to her she won’t listen and just say that I’m a child that needs to learn her place. I get treated like a 3 year old. I am depressed and used to cut and I have tried to talk to her and she won’t listen to me. She says I’m just doing it for attention. She won’t let me do anything. She barely lets me go to any of my school events unless it’s for a grade. She makes me do things because she says that it makes her look good and that I can’t be myself because that will look bad for her. Please help me I’m to that point that I am going to runaway with my boyfriend as soon as I turn 18 or younger.

      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 frustrated by the behavior your grandmother demonstrates towards you. This behavior has caused you a lot of stress, depression and you mentioned self -harm. You don’t deserve to feel this way. The actions of your grandmother are not your fault. It sounds like you would like for her to take the time and just listen to you.

      We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email or bulletin for assistance. If you would like to talk more in detail and share more about how we can help specifically, please call or chat soon.

      Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).

      We hope to hear from you soon.

      Take care,

      Hello There,
      Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are going through a difficult time right now. Ideally home is where you should feel safe and secure and we are sorry that is not the case.
      We are unsure why you do not feel safe so here are some options. If there is abuse going on at home you can always make a report there are a few ways to make an abuse report. One way is to talk with your school counselor because they are mandated reporters they are required to make a report. Another option is to call The Child Help Hotline at 1800-422-4453. Lastly, you can always call or chat with us and we can help you make an abuse report. If you ever feel like you are in immediate danger please call 911.
      Also we are not legal experts but generally if you leave home without permission as a minor your legal guardian does have the right to file a runaway report. If the police were to find you they most likely would bring you home. Also whoever you were to stay with could potentially get in trouble for harboring a runaway. Usually that would consist of a misdemeanor or a fine that they would need to pay. If you do decide to leave you can always give us a call and we can try and help you find shelters or a transitional living program.
      We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any more questions or would like to explore your options please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and provide support to you. We wish you the best of luck!

      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. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.

    • Hello!
      Thank you for reaching out to National Runaway Safeline. Your situation sounds like it might be frustrating for you. It is great that you are proactive in wanting to do well in school. It looks like this would be an issues of who has custody of you and it would be up to them if you could legally live with your grandparents.

You can always call us and utilize our conference call service. This is a three way call between you, one of our liners and your parents. This service is a ways you can talk to your parents with someone else present to help the call go smoother and to keep the conversation on track.

      • Hi I’m 16 and I live in Arkansas. I receive emotional abuse from my mom all the time and she smokes weed and takes pills that aren’t hers. I don’t know what to do about my situation. The other night we fought because of a rumor and she called me every name in the book and wouldn’t let me stay somewhere else or call the cops. She says I have to get permission to get emancipated. Help?

          Hello,

          Thanks for reaching out to us. We are so sorry to hear that things at home have been so difficult for you. It sounds like you’re hoping to live on your own and you’re looking for some help on taking the next steps. We can’t tell you what to do, but we will do our best to share information that might be helpful to you.

          If you’re looking to get an apartment, on option would be to talk to your parents about consenting for you to live outside their home. If you feel like you need help having this conversation with them, we encourage you to reach out to us, and we can help mediate a call, or help brainstorm the best approach to this conversation. Something to consider as you explore moving out is whether you’d be able to sign a rental lease in your state at the age of 16. The laws for what you can and cannot do if you are considered a minor can vary from state to state, so it may help you to know this if you decide to move towards living away from your parents. We’re not legal experts, but from what we understand, if you’re considered a minor in your state, your parents or legal guardians would be responsible for your care until you turn 18 years old. Even though they’ve said some really hurtful things to you, if you leave without their consent, they can file a runaway report with their local police department and, if you are found, the local police would typically return you to your legal guardian. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need someone to talk to, or if you’d like more information on the options we discussed.

          Whatever you decide, please know that we are here for you, and we will support you and help you stay as safe as possible as you decide your next steps. We are available 24/7 at 1.800.RUNAWAY (786.2929), as well as via chat at www.1800runaway.org . We’re here to listen, here to help.

          Stay safe!

          Hello There,
          Thank you for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help and here to listen. It sounds like you are dealing with a lot right now.
          Because you are a minor it is your legal guardian’s responsibility to provide shelter for you. Because they have kicked you out it is considered neglect. You can make a report by talking with the police or by calling Child Help at : 1800-422-4453.
          We are unsure if they would help you get to a friend’s, but you can always try and ask. Also you can consider talking with your friend and seeing if they have options to get you to their house.
          Your safety and health is our top concern, we are here for you 24/7. If you have any other questions or would like to explore options please give us a call. Best of luck!

      • hi, idk what to do. I’m 16 and live in Oregon. I have my own job and could financially support myself alone, but i’m too scared to file for emancipation while living under the same roof as my mom due to abuse. I have suicidal thought every day due to my current living space. I have other places to go, but can’t run away. Tonight I tried to leave to go to my friends house (whose nana is 100% okay with me moving in, even though I was only going to spend the night) well my mom wouldn’t let me even though she had just flipped out on me for never paying for anything. Although I pay for way more then I should have to at my age. Anyways her reaction to our argument was to grab me by my hair and throw me in my room. This is just one incident, tonight’s incident. I don’t feel safe. I haven’t for a long time and I really need help.

          Hey there,

          Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much maltreatment and tension. It sounds like you're very mature and responsible and have been putting a great deal of thought into this decision.

          You mentioned that your mom abuses you and that just today she grabbed you by the hair and this raises concern for your safety and well being. Absolutely no one deserves to be abused. If you are currently at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to seek emergency assistance immediately (if you feel comfortable with the police you can also call 911). You have the right to report any abuse or harm that has been going on at home. If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to 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.

          You briefly touched upon consistent suicidal feelings. We care a lot about your safety, and we can help you find resources that can help you cope with these feelings. You do not have to face this alone, and there is so much help out there for you. If you are thinking about hurting yourself, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline could be a good resource for you. You can check them out at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/, or you can call 1-800-273-8255 for help and support any time. If you’d like some additional support, an organization that may be helpful is the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). You can contact them by calling 1-800-950-NAMI or you can text them by sending NAMI to 741741

          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.
