  • Leaving home at 16 in Kansas

    Hi I’m a 16 year old girl and I’m not 100% sure but I’m pretty sure my mom emotionally abuses me and is a narcissist... I don’t no how much longer I can handle living here with her and my dad. My mom treats me like I’m a maid of the house. My dad isn’t ever home and when he is he’s either drunk or not in a good mood. My mom did tell me that when I was born she and dad had me live with my grandparents and my moms best friend because they didn’t want to stop partying. I have a little sister that’s 18 months younger than me and how my mom treats me and her are comeoletky different... what do I do to get out of here and what is each step and what is the cost range for all of this?
