    Thank you so much for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. We are so sorry you have to deal with that kind of frustration at home. Your safety and well-being is important. If you feel you are in danger of harming yourself, we urge you to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. You could also call us at our toll free number. We are open 24/7 365 days a year and are confidential. If you ever need to vent or discuss options or explore resources, please do not hesitate to call any time.
    The first option we could discuss is a conference call between you, us, and your parents. We could act as referee to make sure everyone feels they are being respected, heard and fully understood in the conversation. Another good option would be to explore family counseling, where you and your parents would visit a therapist together to discuss these dynamics in person and hopefully find a more respectful resolution. Another good option may be to talk to a therapist yourself. This would give you a confidant and a professional ear to help you figure out better strategies for dealing with an unfair home life. If you are interested in any of the above options, please give us a call and we can help you find a therapist or family counselor in your area. If money is a concern, we also have many sliding scale therapists available that could work for a more cost effective price.

    Thank you again for reaching out, and we encourage you to so any time you are in need.

    Hello,
    Thank you for writing to us here at the National Runaway Safeline.

    We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. If you need emergency shelter NRS has a national Data base that allows us to assist you with locating shelter services in your area.
    You also have the option of speaking with a counselor or social worker at school about your situation. They may be able to give you information for family crisis services.
    This could also mean that they would have to file a child abuse report with child protective services being that they are mandated reporters. This usually happens if there is concern for abuse. NRS is here to listen and here to help.
    You do not deserve to feel this kind of behavior from your mother. It is no fault of yours that this is happening.

    If you would like to talk more about your situation and explore or go over the things we mentioned, please call or chat.
    We want you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
    Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button).

    You did well by reaching out today. Good for you.
    If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 9-1-1 or seek emergency assistance immediately.

    Take care,
    NRS

    Thank you for reaching out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are in a difficult situation, and we understand it takes courage to reach out for help. The National Runaway Safeline is located in the United States of America (USA). Our knowledge of helpful community based resources and our understanding of youth in crisis related laws is limited to the USA. If you are located in a country outside of the USA, you can use this link to find a youth helpline in or around your country: https://www.childhelplineinternation...pline-network/.

    We hope that by reaching out to a local resource, you are able to get the support you need from an organization that understands the laws and circumstances that affect youth in your country.

    Hi. I’m 13 and I’ve been going through some stuff at home. My mum would get furious over the smallest and most minor things that aren’t even my fault , and start throwing things, yelling and screaming. My parents don’t respect me or my feelings and always jump into conclusions. I’m starting to feel depressed.

    Hi, and thank you for contacting the National Runaway Safeline. We aren’t legal experts, but we have general knowledge about running away. In most states, running away isn’t illegal, but what is called a status offense. You can’t get arrested for it but it will mostly likely go on your record until you are 18. The police will only know if you have runaway if your parents/guardians file a police report. We can’t say for sure how the police will respond, but we hear a lot that police will take potential places you might be and will actively search for you. If they come across you, the most likely will return you home to your parents. Sometimes we hear that if you are staying with someone who knows you are a runaway and are not actively trying to return you or finding shelter for you, your guardians/or police can press charges against the people who are housing you, with something that is called harboring. One of our main goals is to make sure you are safe, so if you ever seriously decide to run away and need shelter, resources, or a safe place to go you can find safe locations at nationalsafeplace.org or reach out to us directly and we can find local resources in your area. If you would like to talk more about what's going on, please reach out to us at our 24/7 hotline 1-800-RUNAWAY or on chat at 1800runaway.org.

    Thank you for contacting the National Runaway Hotline. This hotline only has resources in United States. If you want to move from Australia and go somewhere like France, then you will need to look for resources in those countries. We are here 24/7 and you can contact us at 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929).

    First of all, thanks for reaching out. It sounds like you are going through a difficult time at home and you’re thinking about where else you can go. Although you didn’t give much information, it is clear you are thinking through this plan so that you are prepared.
    Typically, the safest place to leave is with a friend of the family or a safe relative. In some cases, you may even be able to get your parents’ permission to stay with this person for a certain amount of time. When that isn’t possible, another safe option is to stay with a friend you trust.
    You may also consider trying to go to a shelter but it can be difficult to run away from home to a shelter. Many shelters won’t accept youth who are currently living at home, and most have a goal to reunify you with family so they wouldn’t support your goal of running away from home. They usually also require an ID. However, if you’d like to pursue this, please give us a call and we can look up shelters local to you and help you call them if you’d like.
    Again, we are so glad you reached out for help. Whatever you are going through, we are here to listen and help. Please feel free to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us online at 1800runaway.org.

    Hey there,

    Thanks for reaching out to NRS!

    We are always here to listen and here to help in any way that we can. It can be very frustrating not knowing what to do or what your next step might be from this point on. It’s brave of you to reach out during your time of need. We have a database of resources and if you’re able to call in, we can try to brainstorm with you and get a better idea of your situation. If you have run away and somewhere to stay, we can try to find a runaway shelter for you.

    Our safeline is open 24/7. We also have a chatting service via our website, if you’re not comfortable talking on the phone. The best way to contact us would be to call in and talk with our trained liners.

    Be well, NRS
