      Hi,
      Thank you for reaching out to us; we are glad that you did. It sounds things are really stressful and hard for you at home right now. When your step mother and other of her family members single you out and trash talk and make fun of you – it is understandable that this effects your mental stability, especially since your dad isn’t sticking up for you either. You are very brave and resourceful to reach out to your grandma for help and support.
      We are not legal experts, but our understanding is that since it sounds like your dad has custody of you, he does have the right to determine where you live and to stop you from living with your grandma. If your grandma would be willing to talk with him on your behalf and let him know how serious this is – how badly you feel, maybe something can be worked out.
      We can also help you talk with him about this. We can help you by doing a conference call. You’d call us, then we would call him and we would act as your ally and advocate in talking through this problem.
      You can reach us 24/7 at 1-800-786-2929 (1-800-RUNAWAY), or if you want to chat about it, we have live chat services via www.1800runaway.org
      We hope to hear from you soon,
      Sincerely
      NRS

    Hi I'm 14 and want to move in with my grandmother so I'm 14 and desperately want and need to go live with my grandmother. My father has put my self -worth at 0 and continues to drop it even lower. He is constantly breaking things my grandmother and mother has bought me but never anything he or my stepmother has purchased. He is a very racist and homophobic person. Me and my full sister are both homosexual and he yelled at her for an hour when she came out and just shrugged his shoulders and said no you’re not whenever I did. He's constantly putting down LGBTQ people and my sister. Can I move out?

      Hi,
      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 your feelings about what’s going on. It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. We’re sorry you’re going through this. You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. It is not your fault or the fault of your sister. You cannot control what he does, says or how he feels. The situation sounds very tense and stressful. Here is something you might consider as an option. 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.
      We understand if you are unsure about taking this type of action.
      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. You are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
      If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon at 1-800-Runaway (786-2929), www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button) if you are unable to call in. We unfortunately cannot give advice as we are non-directive. You know your situation best
      Take care and be safe,
      NRS
