    Umm hi. Im a random person who wants to run away, and i dont have a phone. So if a reply goes to email, dont send me one, because then my mom will figure out. And my mom scares the heck out of me, and so does my step-dad. I feel like my mom and step-dad dont love me, and my real dad and my grandparents are the only people that love me, but i barely see them anymore. And my mom makes me feel like i should run away because she makes me want to die. And im scared of the pain of dying, so i was like ‘nope. Im running away.’ Today she said i look like im homeless and then i thought ‘well if i look homeless then why dont i be homeless?!’ I was just too sad and mad. And i tried to calm myself down, but i couldnt. I just want to leave. I actually thought of killing my family, so i know i should leave. Please dont bring this up to the authorities. Im not even allowed to be using the ipad because my sister keeps getting me in trouble. Just please dont tell anyone about this. But im only 10 and i want to leave. What should i do? Reminder do not write back if it goes to email because if it goes to email my whole family will find out. I really thought im going crazy and i shouldnt feel like this. So...what should i do?

    Hi there,
    Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We are sorry to hear about the loss of your graddad and how it has affected you emotionally. We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. 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

    Hello there –

    Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to reach out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline. 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. From reading your post it sounds like you thinking about leaving home due to the possible abuse you face in your household by your guardian. No one deserves to be treated that way at all. Just know that you always have the right to report any abuse (physical, mental, sexual, or neglect/abandonment) to child protective service in your state or you can talk to us about it. You have rights too. Only you know yourself when it’s time to leave home due to it being an unsafe situation. If you reach out to us, we can look to see what is in our database any youth shelters or safe places that you can reach out to for some local support.

    It sounds like you might some specific questions that you want to ask us or maybe find a place to vent about what you are feeling right now. It’s hard to talk to just anyone one about what has been going on. Please rest assured that we are completing confidential. So anything that you share with us will stay between us. We don’t ask for any identifying information, unless you want to report any abuse. You can chat with us by going to our website (www.1800runaway.org) and clicking on "chat".

    We certainly want to help you.

    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. 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.
    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.

    Hi I’m 15, and I have dealt with a lot of things with my life including family problems. As a kid my mom and dad would hit me (metal bar), pull my hair, yell at me, threaten to give me away. For the past two years of my life I have been dealing with bullying from my peers, and I have been in an abusive toxic relationship too. When my parents found out that I was cutting, having anxiety attacks, my dad told me he didn’t care if I died or not. There was a big conversation about it that we had as a family, and I finally spoke up for myself towards them. So for a few months now my mom has changed so much, and has tried to understand me the best she can. It’s my dad who hasn’t. He yelled at me the other day calling me names, and he did that for no reason. He did all that knowing that what triggers my attacks is yelling. A little raise to the voice I could panic, and feel suicidal as I do now. But the past few months I’ve made progress so now all I wanna do is get out of this house instead of feel suicidal. Everything is getting taken out on me when I’ve done nothing. I have made a lot of progress with myself but I feel as if I’m slipping away from that because my own father despises his own daughter, and he even wanted another child for a do -over.

    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. We would like to be of assistance to you if we can. It is times like these that would be nice to have a listening ear. It is also important that you remember to exercise self- care. You showed some by reaching out to NRS. Good for you.

    It’s not your fault that she chooses to discipline you with a belt.
    It sounds emotionally upsetting for you. Your feelings are important and they matter.
    We understand how frustrating this must be for you. You mentioned possibly running away. There may be some other options to explore to get the results you would like to have.

    NRS is here to listen and here to help.

    Hi,
    I’m almost 13 my family is good but I’m complacently different I don't agree with there from of punishment ( a whooping with a belt ) I don't think it's abuse and my mom drinks a lot and I really don't think she's stable that's why most of us ( me and my siblings ) live with our dads she won't acknowledge my bad anxiety and when I had a panic attack she yell at me and "said stop being a brat" and "act like a normal child" and when she told me to stop or she'll give me whooping I stopped but only because I was terrified and later I found out she was bluffing about whooping me there a lot more I can say and there's reasons I can’t stay with relatives and I’m tired of all of it I want to run away with my friend but she might not want to and she's the only one who understand me and I don't to leave her but again I can’t stay at home I’m starting to plan now like what transportation I can use and what food to bring and were to go but I’m scared of being caught
