  • I’m 11 and I want to run away.

    My parents are being so nice to my brothers. If I do something wrong they yell at me. When they do something wrong they don’t care. I want to run away , but I’m not sure.

    I’m 13 and I want to run away as well. I have a similar experience, except that I am in a verbal abuse situation.
    You think that your parents are showing favoritism towards your brothers, but they are just giving them more positive attention, because I am assuming they are younger. I am sorry that they are yelling at you, it’s the same for me as well. My parents yell at me for absolutely no reason. But If you want to run away, think about it for a bit. Things may change. I am not encouraging you to run away though. It can be very dangerous out there. Trust me I have done it before, but I came back. Oh and if you want, My email is [email protected]

    I don't know if I should runaway. I have been grounded for six years off and on for stupid stuff like forgetting to load the dishwasher and not sweeping the kitchen slowly small stuff builds up and I get grounded for a month. I feel like a month is a little over reactive. I easily get angry so I talk back and say a month is outrageous and start yelling at them. So my mother adds to the punishment and I stormto my room. It goes in an endless cycle and so bad reputation builds so 1 month turns into a year it's no help that my sister thinks it's a comedy. Also when I was 5 my mom and dad divorced. My mom married again. This time she was a lesbian ( I find nothing wrong with that). My step mom at 1st loved me but as the years went on my step mom drew closer to my sister and started treating me like trash and then started treating my mom as trash. She eve admitted my older sister was her favorite to my face. Recently my step mom had a baby and that right now seems like the only thing stopping me from going on the run. On top of all of this we move so much and when we last moved my best friend gave me his email but he accidentally deleted his account and we are out of touch. At my new school I have a crush on this girl and I don't know if that's also holding me back from going on the run. Any help please your possible runaway friend Luke age 12
