  • I'm 12 years old, I want to runaway with my sibling.

    As it states, I'm 12 years old this year and I want runaway with my sibling who is turning 14 years old. We both want to runaway since our parents always forces us to things that leads us to anxiety and suicidal thoughts. This ain't healthy for our health, later on I might really kill myself to end this crap. The problem is, I don't want to leave my other siblings to a pack of jerks(parents)! I know just by typing this will be a huge evidence of us running away 'cause of the IP address and all of those crap. Well, at least they will know what the ******** they are doing to us.

    Anyhow, that's not only my problem, I don't know where to go because of those stupid visas and we don't have a passport. I tried explaining to my so called "mother" about my problems but she still didn't f****** listened. That's why I really really wanna get the hell outta here. So tell me how. How to get to the airport and such, that's it. Don't even try to stop me from running away or saying bull crap because I have ENOUGH of that bull!

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline and sharing with us some of your story. We are so sorry to hear that your parents are leading you and your siblings to become anxious and have thoughts of hurting yourself. No one deserves to be put in that type of situation and we are really glad that you have contacted us in trying to figure out what the next steps are to becoming safe. We are not legal experts, but we can speak in general terms on what could happen if you were to leave home.

    We are unsure of the tracking of the IP address, but it sounds like you want someone to know what is being done to you. If you feel that you are being mistreated then you as a minor, have the right to file a Child Abuse Report with your state Child Protective Services. You can file this report with Child Help at 1800-422-4453 or you can call our hotline and we can make the report for you or with you.

    We are not here to tell you what to do, but we do want to make sure that you are safe in what you decide. You are the only ones that can make the decision that is best for you. Again, we are not legal experts, but we can peak in general terms. Generally, you are an adult when you turn 18. If you were to leave before then, your mom would have the option of filing a runaway report with the police. Running away is not a criminal offense, it is a status offense. This means that you cannot do it because of your age. If your mom files a runaway report, then anyone that you decide to stay with, could be charged with harboring a runaway and the severity of that varies from state to state.

    You had mentioned that you are wanting to leave home and leave the states all together. It sounds like you are really putting some thought into what is best for you. Again we are not here to tell you what to do, but we want to make sure that you have some information so that you can make the decision hat is best for you. We are not experts, but general if you were to leave the US then you would need visas and passports. You had mentioned that you don’t have those, which is something that you would need parental approval to get unfortunately. Another thing to be aware of is that when you cross into another country, or are leaving the US, you have to go through something that is called customs. That is where airport security talks with you and asks questions such as what is purpose for leaving the US and other questions like that. If they see that you, being 12 and your sibling being 14, are trying to leave the US without parents or an airport escort, which most minors need in order to fly, then they can stop you and then contact your mom for more information. They will most likely return you home at this point. This is just something to think about when coming up with a plan to leave.

    Some things to think about before you leave is

    -Is where you are going safer then home?
    -What would you do for food? Money? Shelter? Transportation?
    -Who can you depend on if you want to leave home?
    -Is this person willing to take the risk of harboring a runaway?
    -What is your plan B in case your first plan does not work out?

    Lastly, are sorry to hear that you are thinking that if things don’t get better that you may hurt yourself or kill yourself in order to end what is going on at home. It sounds like you are in a lot of pain and that you are looking for anyway to have a happier and better life. That is something that everyone deserves. We would like to offer you the National Suicide Hotline at 1800-273-TALK or www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org . These are places you can turn to if you are feeling like you can not do it anymore. They are there to listen and support you in what ways they can, as are we.

    We hoped this helped and if you would like to discuss your situation in greater detail then you can always give our hotline a call or you can chat with us on our website. We hoped this helped and we look forward to hearing from you.

      I'm 12 years old and I want to runaway with my little brother who is only 8 and has threaten to kill himself in front of my mom and her fiancé. He also hurts himself in front of my mom and her fiancé, but they never do anything. I can't see that clearly he doesn't want to be here so I tried to talk to him and he says that he want to runaway and kill him self. I have a bad reputation with my family, teachers, and friends. After I moved here and started school I was alrady ditching classes, and doing things to agitate people. After my mom started noticing this 'change' she thought I should go to therapy. At first I refused but eventually went with it. Either way I hardly have anything here. No friends and no one who cares. Every one says that true friends will always be there for you but for me they aren't and always expect the opposite from me. I have begged and begged to go live with my grandma but no one pays attention to me unless I do something bad. But i hate my moms fiancé and he hates me. He got with
      my mom for my mom. He hates my brothers. He hasn't had kids before so he just hates them. I've never ran away before but I really want to. I just really want to start over somewhere new.

        Hello,
        Thanks for contacting the National Runaway Safeline.

        We appreciate you having the courage to reach out and talk about your situation.
        It sounds like you are trying to look out for your brother in the midst of your own feelings about everything. Good for you.
        There is help available for anyone having suicidal thoughts.

        The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached at: 1-800-273-8255 (24hrs).

        It sounds like you have been going to see a therapist. That’s good.
        We hope it gives you a place to vent and discuss ways to cope with your situation.

        It’s not always easy accepting someone into your family circle. It does not help if that person is not as accepting of the full situation as well. Running away is a big step and a big change.
        There are things to consider like how you will survive and would you be going from one difficult situation into one much harder? Your safety is important.
        Your feelings and the feelings of your brother matter. Situations can be complicated as well as frustrating. You did a good job reaching out to express how you feel.

        NRS is here to listen and here to help.
        If you would like to talk more about your situation and maybe explore some options contact us at: 1-800-Runaway (786-2929) or www.1800Runaway.org

        We hope to hear from you soon.

        Take care,
