    re: want to live with my mom but dad won't let me

    Hey there,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are going through a tough time with how your dad treats you. It must be really difficult for you to have to go through verbal abuse from your dad, having him yelling, saying harsh things to you. It sounds like you’re dealing with a stressful situation. Is there anyone that you can talk to about what is happening, or anywhere that you feel safe to be? For example, are you involved in any activities, or hobbies that allow you to spend time away from home for a while? If not, you can contact Child Help USA on their hotline or website, to speak with someone about abuse and ways you can stay safe. Their number is 1-800-422-4453.

    You can always contact us directly at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929). Lastly, please note that we offer a live chat via our website at www.1800runaway.org every day from 4:30p to 11:30p CST.

    Take care and stay safe,
    NRS

      Hate my dad. But am forced to live with him.

      Hi. I'm a 14 year old boy. My dad is a good person but he is also a butt hole. I know he probably doesn't mean to be, but he is. And over and over again he is making an ass of himself and I just can't take it. He is above all hypocritical and it drives me bat poop crazy. I can't stand being around him because he finds every excuse to be mad at me. Even for the smallest things. I used to live with him before my parents got a full divorce. He was always the same. He would get TICKED off at me for forgetting to do things like take out the trash or washing the dishes even though I would do them every night anyways. What made me the most angry with him is when I would play a game, my favorite game. He would come over and say "Shut that stupid ******** off and do something else" and then go watch TV or use his phone. And another thing he does to prove his hypocrisy is he always tells my brother and I not to ever cheat on a girl. Yet every time he is with our mom he is always slapping her butt and she always tells him to stop but he just slaps her butt and kisses her and she starts crying because he has a wife. But after the divorce I finally persuaded him to let me live with my mom. Well, that went on for a year. And eventually my dad flew in. And said to me. Pack your ********. Since your not 16 and I have sole custody you are coming back with me. And I had made so many friends that were for the first time in my life real friends. Since I was little I was always moving so I never really made friends. Anyways. My brother got to stay with my mom and I had to leave. My mom was at work when he took me so I didn't get to do anything about it. My mom claims to have 50 50 custody but my dad says different. I want to ask him to show me but he's done so much for me at the same time as being a complete dick. He is just an overall jerk and I can't stand living with him. If you meet him he puts up this front like he's this amazing and perfectly harmless guy. But if you live with him for over a week you see how much that changes and how big of an jerk he is. Please reply. I don't want to live with him anymore.

        RE: Hate my dad. But am forced to live with him.

        Hello,

        Thanks for reaching out. We are sorry to hear about all the conflicts you are having with your dad. It can be very difficult to deal with living with a parent that you find hypocritical, and it is understandable that you would want to live with your mom and be around your friends. We are here to listen and support you in any way that we can. It sounds like there is some confusion about the custody arrangements between your parents. One option could be to see if your mother might consider speaking with a lawyer and challenging your father’s physical custody. If you run away without permission, there is a chance your dad could file a runaway report with the police, who could pick you up and make you go back. However, with joint custody things can be more complex. We are not legal experts, so we can only give general information, however we can provide legal aid referrals that could help you figure out your next steps. You can call us any time 24/7 if you want to talk, or chat with us online. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon, and wish you the best of luck.

            Re: Want to live with my mom but dad won't let me

            Hello,
            Thank you for taking the time to write to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like your dad is really trying hard to keep you from your mother. It must be really difficult to live with him when he won’t even let your mention that you want to be with her. You mentioned that your dad is going to go to court to adjust your mother visitation rights. We know this all must be confusing and hard to deal with but unfortunately there is not much that can be done immediately. One thing that could happen is if your mother gets legal representation and fights whatever your father is trying to have happen. If you would like we can provide you with the contact information to some local legal aid. Just give us a call and one of our trained liners will be happy to assist you. 1-800-RUNAWAY

                Hello,
                Thank you for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It seems like you've been going through a very difficult time lately. While we are not legal experts here at NRS, court is typically required in order to change who has custody over a minor. Since your safety is our number one priority, we could help you make an abuse report if you wanted to call us at 1(800)-RUNAWAY. You could also give us a call if you would like us to find you resources for legal aid in your area that may provide you with more accurate information about your legal rights in this situation. You also mentioned that you've been experiencing some very intense feelings lately. Since your emotional wellbeing is very important, one thing you could do is contact the National Suicide Hotline (1-800-273-TALK) if you ever need someone to support you through this tough time.
                Once again, thank you for reaching out to us at NRS. We wish you good luck and hope to hear from you soon!

                  I am 16 about to be 17 and i live with my mom. I'm uncomfortable living with her because she doesn't have a job or car and my dad pays child support but she doesn't use that money to take care of me. I don't even have my own room at my moms. She puts me down and doesn't let me do things I want to do. I want to live with my dad but he has a warrent. But he has a job and car and takes care of me more than she does. I have a room at my dads and we bond more than me and my mom. Idk what to do.

                          Hey there,

                          Thanks for reaching out to NRS for help! We're not legal advocates, but we do know base line information. It's sounds like you're living with your dad but no one knows you are. Custody is probably a big part of the picture. If your mom is the one who has custody of you, your dad could possibly get in trouble. NRS has legal aid resources and if you call/chat us, we would be more than happy to look up the appropriate resources for you area. Our safeline is open 24/7 at 1800-RUNAWAY. Stay safe

                        Im 13 . 5 days before my 11birthday my parents got divorced . My dad won custody first i was allowed to talk her . Then my father changed my number and deleted all my contats i lost my moms number . And im not allowed to even have it. I only see her in school in lunch break which lasts 10minutes rarely . My father finds out and gets really mad . In my birthday 17 april 13 years old my mom gave me 10 dollars i didnt tell my dad . Somehow he found out . He called and he said did anyone gave u money i was like no then he went like dont you dare lie to me and ill see you when i get home . I havent slept with my mom since 2014 and i really miss her hugging me at rainy nights . And when i had nightmares. Im waiting for my father to come home . I have 2 bigger brothers going thru this . And a stepmother and a grandma that talk ******** bout my mom


                        Is running away illegal? How old do I have to be before I leave home? What is emancipation? We can address these legal questions and more about runaway and homeless youth on this board.

                          Hi,

                          Thanks so much for taking the time to reach out to us. It sounds like you’re in a really difficult situation right now. We are sorry that your dad isn’t letting you see your mom even though you want to, that sounds like it is really isolating.

                          We know you mentioned you only get to see your mom at your lunch break at school for about 10 minutes. It’s great you get to see her then, even if it is for so little time. Something that you could consider doing is talking to her about going to court to see if she could get joint custody or even full custody of you. If your parents have joint custody you should be getting to see your mother, so maybe contacting Child Protective Services could also be a good resource.

                          Again, we are so sorry that you are going through this right now. It sounds really stressful and unfair. If you want to talk more about your situation please don’t hesitate to reach out to us again. You can call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY, we are opened 24/7 so someone will always be here to listen to you and see what else we can do for you.

                          Hello,

                          Thank you for reaching out to us. We’re so sorry to hear that living with your dad hasn’t been going well. It sounds like you really feel a connection to your mom. We’re not legal experts, but from what we understand, if you’d like to make changes to your living arrangement, you may need to speak with your mom about petitioning a court to make changes to the custody agreement currently in place. It’s important to note that this may take some time, so it may help to try to approach your dad to find out if he’s open to making some changes at home that might help you feel more included.

                          Beyond those two things, you always have the option of reaching out to us if you feel that you need someone to talk to. We’re available 24/7 at 1.800.RUNAWAY (786.2929), everyday via chat from 4:30pm – 11:30pm CST. Your situation sounds really tough and you’ve taken a really responsible step in reaching out for help. We can’t tell you what to do, but we will share as much information as we can to help you stay as safe as possible. We wish you the best of luck. Stay safe!
