  • Hello Im R! Im 13 and I hate living in my home I have a little sister a dad and a step mom my mom is very ill and wont heal anytime soon. I dont wanna be here with any of them. My dad is not a nice person he just yells all the time for things that i cant say. My step mom hit me a few time and yells when I dont greet her at the door. My little sister is rude and likes to hit me. We fight more than others. I dont get a word out before told shut up or dont talk. I normal wanna just end it all or harm my self, Because of this I am know for being shy or to scared to do something. Im not allowed to go out and play but I still go to school. I wanna run away or get out. I cant do this anymore I just might km. Im also used to having to put on a fake smile. Im not the happiest human but I wish to be away for here that will make me the happiest. Can someone tell me how to move out of this hell hole. i have thought that if I killed them all I would be happy but I cant go to jail. I hate mostly everything am told your a fatherless child or I hope you die. no one cares for me as mush as my older sister. I was planing to leave at 16 but if there is a way to get out of her sooner I will gladly take it.

      Hi there,

      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 a little bit about what’s going on. It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now and you mentioned being harmed. We’re sorry you’re going through this. You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. 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. They can tell you more about how CPS could respond to your situation. If you ever need assistance calling out to CPS to make an abuse or neglect report please call is at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
      It sounds like you’re quite overwhelmed by things at home right now. It sounds like you’re fearing that the situation may end in suicide if things don’t change. Your safety and well-being is important. If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services.
      You mentioned wanting to know how you can leave home before turning 18. The easiest way to leave home is with your dad’s permission. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.

      Please reach out soon so that we may offer support and resources to you. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

      Be safe,

      Thanks so much for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. That sounds like a really tough situation with your mom. Having an abusive parent is so destructive. So sorry you have to deal with that.

      First off, have you been able to find some emotional support from an adult? Therapist or counselor? That certainly can be helpful, if you haven't. Also, does your dad understand how terrible your mom makes you feel? Have you been able to talk to him about this.



      As for running away, at 13, it can be scary to do. If your favorite cousin and her family are open to this, you'd have to find out if your parents would agree to this. If everyone would approve, your school counselor could help you setup a temporary living arrangement and document this, most likely.



      We are here at the National Runaway Safeline 24 hours a day. You can call or text us and we can discuss this in more detail and provide support and listen. We're at 1-800-RUNAWAY. Again, good luck and don't hesitate to contact us.

  • i want to move out because my mom and my sisters my mom does not know how to be a mom and my sister chasity does not know how to take anything and fids it mean or makes her say stuff like "someone shoot me' and "i want to die" and my sister diamond she is fine.

      Hi there,
      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 a little bit about what’s going on with your mom and sisters. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
      While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
      The easiest way to leave home is with your parents' permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your parents. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.
      We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
      Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button). If you would like to look into further emotional support options, you can text with a crisis worker at the National Alliance on Mental Illness 24/7 by texting "NAMI" to 741741.
      If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
      Be safe,
      NRS

  • I’m 13 and My mom doesn’t properly take care of me and is emotionally and verbally abusive. I’m called names by my family (mostly my sister) and the more I’m around them the more angry I get angry just by their presence. Today I literally got super angry because my brother made a joke. If I stay here any longer I will end up being suicidal. I’m already dangerously depressed and having violent visions. I need to leave this place please help me.

      Hi there,


      Thanks for reaching out to us, we understand it can be a difficult step to take. We hope to help as best we can! You mentioned wanting to know how you can leave home before turning 18. The easiest way to leave home is with your parents or legal guardians permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your parents/guardians. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. If you are in any danger at all, feel unsafe, or anything of the sort we can help you reach out to CPS. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.

      The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255); www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org is also a great resource to reach out to in addition to our crisis services. Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This may be an isolating and lonely time for you, but you are not alone in this. We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
      Please reach out soon so that we may offer support and resources to you. Our number is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).


      Be safe,
