    I’m 13 years old my family is verbally abusive and yells constantly and I can’t express any felling what so ever without getting screamed at anytime I say any of my problems they just push them asides and say I don’t have real problems and I cant focus on anything because there is constant screaming in the house and I ask them to be quiet and I try to get away from it and I can’t it’s beginning to get to much to the point we’re I can’t take it anymore and I want to leave so bad and I need help as soon and possible to get out of here or seek help for my self I am not diagnosed with depression but I think there’s a chance I may have it bc I constantly feel upset or like nothing and anytime I bring it up to my parents they just say I don’t and won’t get me to see help and I just want to leave or talk to someone as soon as possible

    Hi,

    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline – we are here to help and listen.

    We’re sorry to hear that things have been rough at home, it sounds like it’s been rough for some time.

    You mentioned wanting to leave home but being concerned about possible consequences. While we are not legal experts we can speak generally on this. Leaving home without permission from your parents as a minor is not illegal, but it is a status offense. This means your parents can report you as a runaway to the police. Again, you would not be arrested or charged with a crime because of this. It does mean your parents can ask police to return you home if they know where you are staying.

    One way you could leave home would be to leave with permission from your parents. We want to clarify that while parents can give consent to you leaving, they can also change their minds. We understand talking to parents about leaving home can be difficult. Maybe this conversation can be had with the family members that you would like to stay with.

    Another way you may be able to live somewhere else is through a child abuse report, via the child abuse hotline stated above. 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.

    If you’d like to discuss these options further, we would be happy to talk to you via our 24/7 hotline (1-800-786-2929) or through our chat feature:

    Best of luck,

    Hey there,
    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline, it seems like you are going through a lot right now and it is understandable to be upset and feel frustrated by how you are being treated differently from your other siblings. You don’t deserve to have everything taken away for small things while your siblings get a slap on the wrist and an apology instead. It seems like your mom is holding you to different standards than your other siblings and it might be worth thinking about the reasons for this to find out what you might be able to do to lessen the load on yourself. It seems like you have other stress as well and you deserve to have support through this instead of extra pressure and confusion.
    You mentioned experiencing emotional abuse which may be reportable against your mom. Please keep in mind you by no means deserve any type of abuse, emotional or otherwise. Unfortunately, emotional abuse is often harder to provide evidence for compared to physical abuse which is often what CPS relies on when conducting an abuse investigation. That said, we can’t be 100% sure what the outcome will be if your local CPS decides to open a case based on what you share. Sometimes CPS decides to remove minors from the home and other times they offer services such as family counseling or mediation instead. The only way to know the outcome might be to reach out to them directly and if you’re ready to do that we are here to help you through that process. Reaching out to Child Help USA at 1-800-422-4453 or www.childhelp.org may help to get a better understanding of what may happen before and after a report is made.
    If you feel like this is an option you want to explore, you may find this website helpful: https://www.childhelp.org/child-abuse/. We can also help you to file a report if that’s the route you are considering.
    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 unfortunately cannot give advice as we are non-directive. You know your situation best
    We hope to hear from you soon.
    Be safe,

    Hi I´m 14 and i don´t want to live with my parents anymore, they always expect me to do everything around the house and i get I should not be lazy either but im also not the only kid in our family i have 2 other sibling and whenever they get in trouble its the most simplest punishment they give them but its a whole different story with me they take everything to a whole different level they take everything i have in my room including my clothes shoe etc. and they expect me to wear clothes that dont fit me but yet they dont do that to my other siblings and I am the only one who helps around the house and my mom still calls me an ungrateful child and i take it very harsh because i feel like if she dosent want me because im the only one whos always getting introuble for every little thing i do and she gets botherd with everything i do and say. My mom gets that I am going through a lot of stress lately and just yesterday she got mad at me calling me differt kind of names and I sometimes feel like if my mom enjoys hurting my feeling because after of what she says she dosent come tell me sorry but she does to my other sibling

    We're sorry to hear your brother is mistreating you and your parents aren't taking it seriously enough. That must be frustrating and you certainly don't deserve to be neglected like that. One option would be to file an abuse report about what's going on through your state's child abuse reporting hotline. You can also file through us or through Child Help (www.childhelp.org) at 1-800-422-4453. A report would likely lead to an investigation as to what's going on and how the situation can be rectified.

    Another option would be to tell someone else you trust in your life about what's going on. Perhaps that's a teacher, counselor, or another relative. Perhaps they could advocate for you to make your case to your parents that this is not a good situation and your rights to safety are being abused by your brother. This takes courage, but the more you are able to open up about the situation to others who can help, the more likely things can change for the better. You have this courage inside you, please know that!

    If you'd like to talk to us about this to brainstorm other ideas or just walk through how these options might go you can call us at 1-800-RUNAWAY or chat with us via our website: www.1800runaway.org. We are here 24/7 and are confidential.

    Things can get better. Please get whatever help you need. All the best to you!

    I’m 15 and my brother hits me he has pushed me to the ground and he has left bruises on my arms. My parents just yell at him and don’t punish him so he does it over and over but if I try to fight back I get in trouble. He has pushed me into walls and after I got back up he would do it again. I’m really scared to tell anyone and I don’t know what to do.

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for reaching out and sharing a little bit about what’s been going on, we know that it takes a lot of courage. 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.

    Be safe,

    Hi I'm 14
    and I would like to move out with my brother we're working on getting a lawyer but the reasons we want to move out is because well my parents are separated so I live with my dad most of the time and my step mom and both my sisters with my brother but I get forced to go to my moms when I'm not happy there we have a relationship which is not well we fight and argue a lot and sometimes it gets to the point of physical and verbal abuse and tends to get the cops involved, which then gets my dad stressed and gets mad at me for it and then my siblings hear about it and call me out for it. I just wanna get away from it all cause they cause rumours and then everyone hates me for it and thinks that I'm the "bad kid" I just wanna move out so I can live on Munich own focus on my own and my mental health without getting made fun of or beat I feel so alone most of the time the only person I can talk to is my brother and dog, And yes I've had multiple therapists and counsellors and it doesn't end very well so I just hope I can live on my own with my brother.

    Hi,
    Thanks for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline. We are sorry to hear things have been so difficult at home.
    It sounds like you are not being treated very well by your parents, and that their drinking is affecting your home life and wellbeing. 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. They can tell you more about how CPS could respond to your situation. If you ever need assistance calling out to CPS to make an abuse or neglect report please call is at 1-800-RUNAWAY.
    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. We want 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 at 1800runawy.org or call us at 1-800-RUN AWAY. We hope to hear from you soon.
    Sincerely,
    NRS
