    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.

    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

    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.

    Hey there,
    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the National Runaway Safeline (NRS). It sounds like you are having a very hard time at home. We are here to help in any way we can.

    You mentioned that your family is verbally and sometimes physically abusive. No child deserves to be abused, you should not have to experience that. Childhelp is the National Child Abuse Hotline.

    You also said that you have become mentally suicidal. Emotional abuse can take a big toll on your mental health. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is a great mental health resource. Their website is www.nami.org, and they have a HelpLine as well at 1-800-950-6264. This HelpLine is only available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET, so if you need 24/7 help, they have a Crisis Text Line. To use this text NAMI to 741-741. If you are contemplating suicide, the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255.

    You mentioned that you have thought about staying with your best friend for a few days. That is great that there is somebody that you trust and would want to stay with if you left home.

    hi im 14 and i need to get out of my abusive household but ive always been scared of leaving because ive never really been that independent and ive always been scared and paranoid if they catch me or someone kidnaps me. my family is verbally abusive and sometimes physically too. my mom and dad always shame me and always say stuff to me that hurt me so much. they are really bipolar and if i dont be the perfect child they want me to be then they say a bunch of unnecessary things that hurt me so much. they call me lazy and that they would prefer that i get kidnapped or robbed and that they'd return me the next day because of how selfish and ugly and useless i am. i always cry myself to sleep and whenever i cry in front of them they always either laugh or say oh look shes crying again. my life is so unfair. i dont know what to do at this point. ive become mentally suicidal but never actually had or have the courage to physically hurt myself. i have a phone but they will always take it away or disconnect it so i wont have any form of communication with anybody.so i bascially have nothing to do except cry or do some crafts. ive also had bad grades now because of online school and i dont really seem to have a motivation at this point so i dont really feel like doing anything because every day just seems the same and i try to do stuff around the house but my brothers never help me and basically almost do whatever they want. my parents also body shame me and say that im getting fatter and i need to exercise because i starting to look like a whale but whenever i start to workout they always say that what im doing is not important right now so i go do stuff around the house to help. ive tried not eating but my mom always says to eat or else ill become sick and theyll have to pay for hospital bills and that they dont want to waste usless money on me. i really dont know what to do. ive been thinking of leaving but have never had the courage to. ive been thinking of living with my best friend but i think theyll just have me for a couple of days since they are not finically ok right now. right now my parents have me living in a room thats not even remodeled and they give my used furniture that is used or broken by other people. so if you guys have any suggestions on what i should do please let me know. thanks.

    Hi,
    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like things at home have been really hard. We hope to help in the best way we know how.
    It sounds like when your Dad is angry, you grow fearful. You should not have to live in fear. It is important you know that you can always reach out to Child Help to talk through the option of reporting any kind of abuse that may be going on at home. Their number is 1-800-422-4453. If you are in immediate danger, we encourage you to reach out to the police at any time.
    Otherwise, you may consider talking to your Mom and brother about ways to approach your Dad about his drinking. One resource that might be helpful to you is the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration at 1-877-726-4727. This may be a good starting point for dealing with any addiction that may be present in the home, as this national database of substance abuse counseling by area can attend to any intervention needs your Dad might have.
    We hope you find this helpful. You also mention not wanting to live at home anymore. If you ever reach out to us we can help you find a shelter or other temporary housing in your area. Our number is 1800-RUN-AWAY.

    Sincerely,
    NRS
