    Hi, I am 14 and I have been struggling with some things at home. My parents found out that I’ve been skipping online classes and the my grades dropped from straight A,s to straight F’s. The only reason why I did it is because I am home alone 24/7 and then around 3:31 my little brothers come home and I need to babysit. I am home alone from 11:00am- 8pm. I just wanted attention from my parents but know I feel like I am just a burden to them. I have had thoughts of doing drugs from the last 6 months now and yesterday was the first day I tried something. Once my parents found out that my grades dropped, the first thing my dad told me is “I want to just go home and choke you.”. And then this morning my mom woke me up saying that I need to start working on weekends at the family restaurant and when I told my mom that I was going to use the weekend to start focusing harder on school she said “ I don’t care”. My mom also threatened to take all of my clothes away and only leave me with underwear and bras and a shirt and a pair of pants. I also think I’m bi- curious, and I don’t want to tell any of my family because of all the homophobic jokes they have made over the years. I also haven’t had my own room for almost a month now because we have this friend (that I did not agree could come home ) staying at my house. In the past days has also invaded my privacy by taking my room door down and he claims that a 14 year old girl does not need “privacy”. They also threatened to take my phone away when my phone is the only thing I have close to outside communication, and my phone is also the way I turn in school work. I wish I could have an open conversation with them about how I’m feeling and why I did all of this, and the thoughts I’ve been having, but they will just end up calling me ungrateful or go on about how I don’t do enough, or that this is all just in my mind, or that they never had the opportunities in life that I have right now as a child in Gen Z. Please help me, or just threaten to send me to military school in South America because it’s “cheaper”. Please help me.

      Hi
      Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline – we are here to help and to listen.
      We’re sorry to hear that your parents have made threats to hurt you, aren’t letting you focus on school, and threatening to take away your phone. You do not deserve to be treated that way, and you have a right to file a child abuse report. You can do so at ChildHelp 1-800-422-4453.
      Normally investigations are taken when there is strong evidence of physical abuse or neglect, however this may also depend on who takes the call. Any hotline worker at ChildHelp should be able to take your report and let you know what actions they can take. One of our own hotline workers can also help you file an abuse report.
      We would like to leave you with a few hotline referrals. The Trevor Project (1-866-488-7386), the LGBT National Hotline (888-843-4564), and TransLifeline (877-565-8860) are 24/7 hotline numbers that you can access to speak to someone if you are in crisis or if you wanted to speak with someone. The Substance Use and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) hotline is also 24/7 1-800-662-HELP (4357).
      You can also reach us via our 24/7 hotline and chatline to discuss these options further. Navigating your sexuality and a changing home life can be confusing, but you are not alone in this process.
      Best of luck,
      NRS

    i dont know what to do. and i dont know if my parents are even abusive. my dad isnt around so when i mention my parents i mean my step dad and my mom, who are actually divorced. confusing i know. they never told me why they were even getting divorced. never have, never will. i cant help but think its because of me because in the same year they got divorced, before, i was cutting + was very suicidal. i was 8? maybe? my mom is terrifying. i know she doesnt truly love me. she kicked me out of her house because of the way i shut the micro wave, so i lived with my step dad for a week, and then she made me come back and pretend like nothing ever happned. i do strongly belive she was abusing xanex for a while. her docter, who is a friend, keep that in mind, gave it to her for 'sleeping'. thats not what its used for and i know htat. she has force fed me xanex before when im having panic attacks so i just fall asleep and she wont have to deal with me. she takes my phone for anything i do because she hates me talking to my friends about her and what she does. she wont even let me stay with my grandma because then my mom wont have control of me. whenevr i bring up how i am feeling she calls me crazy and screams at me. i really dont want to live anymore. i took too many of my depression meds and over doesed. i should have gone to the hospital but htye would have drug tested me, i had smoked weed with a friend the day before, which is really weird for me, but i needed something to forget for a little bit. But i never told my mom. only one friend. i was sick for a week, and tbh, i wish i woudve taken one more pill that wouldve pushed me over. im just doing so bad and i have no where to go. ive tried talking to counslers, inside and outside of school, but my mom finds a way to get them to tell her what im talking about. i dont know what to do but i want to do something that isnt ending my life, because i dont want to leave my friends and my sister.
