      Hello There,

      Thank you so much for reaching out to The National Runaway Safeline, it takes great courage to reach out and we are so glad that you have decided too. We are sorry to hear that you are going through a difficult time and we want you to know that you are not alone.
      Running away is a big decision to make that only you can make as you know your situation the best. If you were to leave your legal guardian could file a runaway report, and if the police were to find you it is a possibility that you could be brought back home. It seems you have a lot going on you may want to consider talking to a school counselor about what has been going on at home. They may be able to provide support and help with resources. A resource that may be helpful to you is called NAMI (national alliance. They can be reached at 1800-950-NAMI.
      We hope that this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any more questions or would like to talk further about your situation, please give us a call. We are completely confidential and non-judgmental and available 24/7. We wish you the best of luck!

  • Hi, I just turnt 13 last December, I live with my grandma, mom, cousin, aunt & brother. It’s only a 3 bedroom so I share a room with my aunt while my grandma, mom and brothers share a room and my cousin has a room to himself (my old room) we are living here because we’re struggling financially we used to live with my stepfather but him and my mom had a big fight (they fought at least twice a month and they were always bad) she decided to move out, we’ve been staying here since last September, and I hate it here so much. Today (3 hours ago) my mom lashed out on me basically I broke my zipper to my winter coat and didn’t realize until I was getting ready to put it back on she was mad and yelled at me saying I broke it on purpose and how did I not realize, but I didn’t even realize, the whole house was saying I was lying now I do lie time from time but half of the time I’m telling the truth and this time I was, I yelled and said “I didn’t do it!” I was sitting in the living room and my mom was in my grandma’s room and she jumped up and came in the living room and started constantly punching me, she held me down and and pulled my hair out of my beanie she yelled “I will kill you b***h don’t you yell at me” & “how dare you be disrespectful to me after all I do for you” I cried screaming for her to get off me, my aunt yelled “that’s enough (her name)” I cried and kicked and tried to fight back a little she cut me on my face with her nails I screamed and kicked till after a good 5 minutes she got off me and I slid onto the floor crying she kicked me and walked away going back to the room, my aunt said “that’s what you get for being disrespectful” I didn’t mean to yell, but this always happens this happens at least once every 2 months when she lashes out on me and starts fighting me, my mom is 33 and a little plus sized so I have no chance with trying to fight back, I don’t know if this is abuse or discipline so I don’t know if I was in the wrong or not. But I really wanna get out of here I don’t know what to do the only place I have left to go is my dad’s house who stays 2 cities away, he has a stable home and I’ll have my own room I kinda like it there I only visit 3 times a month but he doesn’t have the time to watch over me and take care of me properly due to his work, please tell me what do I do
