  • My mom makes me feel like I’m a disappointment an when I was little she kind of neglected me so I always hated to be in that house an the only I feel loved is by my older brother who’s been there for me over all the stupid freak out my mom had, she blames all her life problems on me, an screams at me for stuff I didn’t do an I’m sick of getting treated that way and I want to move out but I’m only 14 turning 15 in a couple days tho, but I am wondering if there’s anyway I could move out an I know they won’t want me to move out but I would fight to be able to move out of that house

      Hey there,

      Thanks so much for contacting us, it takes a lot of courage to reach out and share your story. It must be really hard to live in a home with so much tension - it's not OK for your mom to blame you for her life problems. Running away is a big decision and it can be very stressful to figure out what you want to do.

      You mentioned that your mom is neglectful. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. If any harm, abuse, or neglect is happening at home, you have the right to report it. 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.

      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.

      All the best,
      NRS

      Hello and thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We are sorry to hear that your home life has gotten to the point where you feel like you have to move out. Living in a house with constant fighting and arguing must be immensely stressful and difficult. It is great that you have what sounds like a good relationship with your aunt. In terms of introducing the idea of moving in with her, it may be a good idea to just be as honest as you can. It does not sound unreasonable for you to tell her that you are unhappy at home because of the fighting and that you would like for her to seriously consider if you could live with her. You can start by just asking her if she has time to talk to you about something. From there, if she is open to the idea of you moving in, you two can strategize for how you might introduce the idea to your parents. Of course, we would be happy to talk to you in greater depth about what is going on. If you are interested, please don't hesitate to call us at 1-800-786-2929 or chat us at 1800runaway.org.

      Take care,
      NRS

              Thank you for writing in to the National Runaway Safeline. Depending on which state you are in, your sister is still considered a minor for a few years. We are not legal experts, but if she left to stay with you and her guardian chose to file a runaway report, you could potentially be charged with harboring a runaway. If you are turning 18 soon, you could possibly come to an agreement with her guardian on an ‘alternative living situation’ in which she stays with you. This type of agreement typically involves legal involvement, however, so it’s best to consult your local authority for more information.

              Please give us a call at 1800 RUNAWAY (786 2929) for additional support and resources. Take care.

          • I want to run away. I’ve been thinking this for about 2-3 years now. My mom is an absolute hot mess. She makes me feel like I’m the worst daughter in the world, and didn’t even believe me when I was sexually assault by my science teacher. My father is an absolute monster. He verbally abuses me and called me a “slut” a “whore” and “fat” when I’m not any of those things. My parents really should get a divorce, but I don’t think they would ever get a divorce, even though their relationship is so toxic. My dad is super selfish and never pays attention to me, and my mom cusses me out when I say I want to speak to a councilor. I hate my life, and I’ve thought about just ending my life, but I just need to get away from my toxic family. I can guarantee that I will not be able to survive in this family for much longer. Please help me

              We are glad you reached out to us. It takes a lot of courage to get help. It sounds like you have a lot of difficult things going on in your life and with your family. You don’t deserve to be treated so abusively. It is tremendously challenging dealing with sexual assault when your parents are not supportive and don’t believe you. We would recommend that you call us directly at (800) 786 2929. We are staffed 24/7 and want to help you find the right resources you need to deal with your family issues and your stress. There are numerous options we can look at to try and find the right help for you. We know it is not easy to get help and reach out and we are glad you started that process.

              Hello,

              You mentioned some things that raise concern for your safety and well-being. If any harm or abuse is happening at home, you have the right to report it. We are not experts on the issue, but generally once it's been reported, social services will either decide whether or not to take the case and further investigate. If they do take the case, they will send out someone from child protective services to do an investigation (interviewing people in the household) and from there they will decide the level of danger within the household. It generally ranges from no danger (the youth stays in the home, some services are given, and the case is closed), moderate danger (they will provide family services with possible temporary displacement) and high danger (they will remove the youth from the home and offer certain services).

              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.

              Please be safe and reach out soon by phone or chat so that we may help.

              Hi there,

              Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline (NRS)! It sounds like your parents’ constant yelling is causing you mental and emotional distress. You do not deserve to be mistreated this way! Your life is important and you matter – if you ever feel unsafe, please reach out to emergency services by phone (9-1-1, National Alliance on Mental Illness by calling 1-800-950-NAMI or text 741741) or in person.

              It’s great that you have your grandmother in your life that you trust and feel comfortable living with. You may want to consider contacting your local authorities and legal advisors regarding the implications of moving in with your grandma without your parents’ consent. You can also consider speaking with a school counselor or another trusted adult about your home life. Sometimes having help from someone outside of the family can bring attention to the issue and other safe ways to bring about change in a safe space.

              As a reminder, we are here to help sort through things with you and identify a plan that is safest and best for you.

              We hope you reach out by phone (1-800-RUNAWAY or 1-800-786-2929) or chat (https://www.1800runaway.org/) soon.

              Take care and good luck,

              NRS
