    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. It may also be a good place to explore options for staying with another family member or someone you trust as far as transferring custody.
    Often, having a safe space to share how you’re feeling may bring a variety of solutions previously not thought of. You are not alone in this. You might consider speaking with a counselor or social worker at school about your situation. They can also file child abuse reports if this is something you would like to do. By law they are required to report any allegations of child abuse. We understand this might be a tough decision to for. NRS wants you to know that we are here as support to help you through this challenging time.
    If you would like to talk more in detail please chat soon through our website www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button) if you are unable to call in.

    We hope to hear from you soon.

    Be safe,
    NRS

    Hello I’m 13 I really want to leave home or even hurt myself but I know that many people will be sad if I do that. The reason is many of my good friend found new friends that they boast about and say ohh hey my new friend is really good at running she’s even better than you. Which is really upsetting. At home our parents hit me and my sibling at least once every 2 weeks, I have some bruises and I used to have better stamina but not that much anymore. They also mentally abuse me like “what the heck u are such an ungrateful child when I ask for something 2 dollars but when my siblings ask to get something 20 dollars, she’s like ohh ok let’s buy that. Since I am the oldest they always blame something on me. These are really stressful but I know they love me and just want the best.

    Hi I’m 13 and I really don’t know if my family still cares for me or not, I’m like in that stage where I feel completely alone and like my family and I aren’t really caring for each other, you dig? I also don’t live in the best conditions that might also be why, but I just don’t know what to do. I’ve considered running away, but where would I go? I also have a sibling that gets more attention and love than I do (or at least I’m pretty sure my sibling does) which also infuriates me. Any suggestion helps

    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).
