      Hi there,

      You mentioned wanting to know how you can leave home before turning 18. The easiest way to leave home is with your parents 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 parents. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. 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

  • I want to move in with my best friend so it’s not necessarily running away. They’re okay with it but the reasons I want to move out are my parents aren’t here for me on an emotional level they think I should be happy because I have a place to stay which I am don’t get me wrong but i don’t get the emotional help i need. Another reason is the only time we ever talk is arguing because i want to go to someone else’s house where i can get my emotions through and have a genuine smile and laugh.

      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 really difficult time right now. It can be hard to feel like your parents are not meeting your emotional needs. At NRS we offer conference calling where if you call us we can call out to your parents and have a conference call. Conference calling allows you to be heard and we are there to mediate the conversation and provide support. Another option you could consider is to talk to a school counselor about what is going on, they may be able to provide you with additional resources and help.
      You mentioned staying with your friend, if your parents give you permission then we assume that would be okay. If you leave without permission your parents have the right to file a runaway report. If the police do find you they most likely would bring you back home.
      We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore your options more please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and to provide support. We wish you the best of luck!
      NRS

      That sounds like a very difficult situation you are in. I’m sorry to hear you’re dealing with this issue, thank you for contacting us.

      It’s good to hear that your sister cares about you and supports you. If you do run away, your mom does have the right to report the runaway which can end in being sent back home by the police. However, with parental permission you may legally live with your sister or wait till you turn the age of majority. If you do not feel safe, you can text 44357 the word “safe,” and your location to find a safe location in your area. Once you arrive let someone who works there know you need help connecting with a staff member.

      We’re really glad you reached out to us. It can be really hard realizing that you want situation to change. I wish you the best of luck and if you want to talk to someone through chat or on the phone, do not hesitate to do so at 1-800-RUNAWAY

  • I’ve had enough of my family, school and everyone in general I don’t know what to do anymore my life is like a rollercoaster that goes up and down but then gets stuck on the down side for a long period of time. I’ve been wanting to leave and go for a Long time now I don’t care where I go but my life would get better if I wasn’t surrounded by the people who make it ********. No matter how hard I try I seem to come worse of my half brother seems to think he’s the farther figure in the house and try’s to control my life , he’s abusive and just dam right nasty . I just don’t wanna be here no more If I’ve gotta put up with all the ******** I get on a daily basis.

      Hi,
      Thank you for reaching out to us. It sounds like you have a lot of hard things to deal with. The ups and downs of life feeling like a rollercoaster sounds really stressful, and it doesn’t sound like you have a lot of support. Your half-brother being abusive and nasty, as well as trying to control your life is really tough. It is understandable that you feel like moving out.

      The issue is that at 14, we would have to hear more about your situation to help you discover your options. We are here for you, and we can talk about ways to help things be better at home, or see if there’s a way to help you be safe from your half-brother. You do not deserve to be treated badly and abused. You found us, and now you know tht you are not alone in this.

      You can reach out to us again either by our phone hotline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929), or our live chat service through this website, 1800runaway.org We hope to hear from you. We are here 24/7 to listen and help.

      Sincerely, NRS

  • I’m ready to move out. My mother works in the day and at night she works at a club. She gets mad at for no reason most of the times. She says I’m a disgrace and slaps me in the face sometimes. I have a scar on my eyebrow from her slapping me and cutting me with her braclet. Her boyfriend does nothing to help. I’m ready to move out. I hung out with my friends and we Almost forget to clean up trash and the building emails her and she grounds me for months. Can’t take this anymore

  • My parents make me do everything in the house cooking, cleaning and taking care of my little brother and when they come home they still aren’t happy. I talked to me auntie she said she would take me in and send me to my grandmother in a different country where I grew up until I was the age of starting school. Could my parents do anything about that? I’m only 14 and tired of everything

  • I want to move out. So freaking bad. I’m so tired of being so damn dirt poor all the time, I live with my mom and her boyfriend. They don’t have any jobs, can just barely afford to tend to our (me, my sister and younger special needs brother and baby sister) needs. I hate how everything is so improper in this household. Where our living room used to be, my mom, her boyfriend and baby sister have turned it into their bedroom, and our aunt lives in the basement. Our house is never clean, our front door is broken, we have no air conditioner, not even a fridge light. No car, always have to take the bus. Our house is basically rotting, and I’m ashamed of it. I hate my house so bad, I look at Facebook ads of houses and daydream of moving there and having both my mom and stepdad working jobs and having a proper lifestyle, and it’s draining because I know that’s not going to happen, at least for a while and I can’t move in with my dad, because he himself is just barely making it and he’s not even living in the city. And I always avoid bringing friends over, and my mom seems to have not a care in the world. It breaks me emotionally because all I want is properness in a house where it’s non existent. I want to call this Neglect but it’s just below the line

  • I’m 14 and I really want to live with my sisters in California, when I’m not with them it feels like something inside of me is missing. I really love my parents and family though. I play hockey and take it very seriously but if I were to somehow live with my sisters I don’t think I would be able to play the sport I love. I just don’t know and am frustrated. What do I do? Please.

    • I'm 14. I have very high ambitious parents they want only good grades and nothing else. They insult everything I like from my music taste, my clothing, my friends etc. They care 0 percent of my mental health. They don't let me go out with my friends ever. Then they blame me for not having any "good friends." I also get abused a lot. I really want to move out but I have nowhere to go.

    • Hello, I'm 14 and i was debating on running away, i know it's illegal for minors but I had an argument with my father today and got very angry and sad. I feel like he loves me but other times i don't. I just want to be able to do what i want with my hair and he won't let me. When he has an answer down his mind is set on it and I need some help because tomorrow I'm going back home around 1 or 2 and i really don't want to deal with this..
