  • Ist'm 11 and I'm planning to run away

    People always ask me why I love school so much and I always tell them that I just love to learn. That's not true, I love school because I'm away from my mom. Whenever I get home I can expect my mom to be screaming at me for little things. I was sick recently and I forgot my jacket at home. Later that day my mom picked me up from school. She was calling me a ********** and told me i dont have the right to be sick. That's only one example. I dont feel like I can talk to her about anything. I tried to once and she told my I was stupid for thinking that and sent me to my room. I have to do everything she can't get up and do it herself. I have to do the dishes, wash laundry, clean her bedroom and bathroom and I cant take it any more. I have tried to calm down and I cant. So I came up with the idea of running away. I will probably go stay at my friend's house or go to my dad's house. I not sure what to do but next time she does yell at me I'm gonna take a video of it. I just dont know what to do.

    Thank you very much for reaching out to us. It sounds like you are feeling unsupported at home, especially by your mom. You deserve a lot of credit for trying to speak to your mom about what has been bothering you and it seems as though you are doing the best you can. You deserve to feel loved and safe at home, especially in the company of a parent.
    You do not deserve to be treated this way by your mom. That said, have you mentioned the details of your relationship with her to any entrusted adult (such as a school counselor, family member, teacher, dad, etc? This does sound like a distressing situation and we want you to be safe. I’m wondering how you think your mom would react if you were to runaway to stay with your dad or friend. Would you plan on telling your dad/friend what brings you to their house? We would encourage you to contact us at 1-800-RUNAWAY if you would like to further discuss your situation.
    Again, we are glad that you reached out to us. You reaching out shows a lot of strength. We are here to help and here to listen. And most of all, we want you to be safe. Please do not hesitate to give us a call.

    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
