    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 there has been some big differences between you and your mother over what sounds like her abusive behavior. We understand the difficulty of your situation and how frustrating it has become for you.
    You don’t deserve to be treated badly and it is certainly not your fault that this is happening. Sometimes things become overwhelming and due to the stress it might become difficult to cope or know where to turn for help. Things may feel bleak right now but you did well reaching out today. It sounds like you have been very responsible in your school work to which you should feel proud of. Let us know how we might help.

    NRS is here to listen and here to help. Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. If you would like to speak more about your situation and explore options, please contact us at 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or

    You did a good job reaching out today. We hope that things change for the better.
