    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for contacting us, we know it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help. It’s important to consider all the possibilities that can occur if you leave home. You will need to plan out how you will cover basic necessities like travel, food, clothing, etc. If you have a place to go in mind, it’s good to see what the expectations of the living arrangement will be like; rules, the amount of time you’re allowed to stay, if you’re expected to contribute financially, etc. This can all influence your decision to leave.

    If you’d like to go over what’s going on in depth, or if you’d like to explore other options that you may have available to you, please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY. You can also chat us by clicking on the “CHAT” button on top of our homepage. We’re open 24/7 and here to listen and support you in any way we can.

    All the best,
    NRS

    Hello There,
    Thank you for contacting The National Runaway Safeline we are here to help and hereto listen. It sounds like you are going through a really difficult time right now. Having your parents scream all the time can be frustrating and scary all at the same time. One option you could consider is reaching out to your school counselor and letting them know what is going on, sometimes talking to a professional can help us feel better. You also mentioned that you believe they hate you, one option you may want to consider is having a conversation with your parents about how you feel. At NRS we offer conference calling where if you call out to us we can help you talk with your parents. Conference calling allows you to be heard and we are there to provide support and to mediate the conversation. If at any moment you ever feel in danger at home you can always call 911 ASAP.
    You also mentioned wanting to runaway, we are not legal experts but we can do our best to give you some knowledge. If you were to leave home without permission, because you are 9 years old your parents have the right to file a runaway report. If the police found you they would most likely bring you home. Running away can be dangerous at any age but especially for a youth who is 9 years old. Your safety is our top concern so we would want you to be safe. You may want to consider what you would do if you found yourself in a dangerous situation. What would you do for food and money and where would you go.
    Running away is not your only option if you call us we would be happy to explore other options with you. If you find running away is your only decision we are not here to tell you advice but we are here to provide support. If you need somewhere safe to stay we can try and help you find safe places you can stay such as shelters.
    We hope this information will be helpful to you in your situation. If you have any other questions or would like to explore your options more please give us a call. We are here 24/7 to listen and provide support. We wish you the best of luck!
    NRS

    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).

    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.
