      Hi there,

      We appreciate that you reached out to us at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like you are going through a very rough time, and we can understand how you may be feeling the need to leave home. We do see that you mentioned you are 28 years old, and while we are not able to directly give you any advice, we do want to point out that as a legal adult, you have the right to live and go where you please.

      Our services are mostly geared for youth, so we do recommend that if you are in crisis that you reach out to an organization like the Crisis Text Line at 741-741, or getting in touch with a counselor locally.

      We wish you the best of luck, and take care!
      Sincerely,

      NRS

    I really don't understand why my family are very strict to me. I am already 28 years old. There's many things i can make decision on my own. I can't stand the strictness my family is treating me. For the time being i will go out to the shopping mall or go out to the beach to have some fresh air, if i no longer can tolerate, i will pack all my clothings and leave home and never come back

      It sounds like you are feeling really frustrated living at home at 28 like you have been. The good news is that since you are 18 you are more than likely considered a legal adult which means that you can move out if you want to and you won’t be considered a runaway. As a legal adult, you have a right to make your own decisions about where you live. We can help you make a plan for how to deal with your situation and help you find resources to land on your feet. Having a plan for where you will live and how you will survive once you move out can be very helpful. Moving can be a huge step, and you don’t have to be alone. Some steps you can take towards independence might be to find employment if you don’t have an income, or to save up money for moving expenses. It can also be helpful to research rents in your area, find a roommate, or make a budget.
      Another thing you might want to consider is what kinds of things you depend on your parents for currently such as health insurance, and whether they would continue to provide those things after you leave. There may be social service agencies in your area that can help meet some of these needs, such as Transitional Living Programs, a kind of shelter where young adults can live and get services to help them transition to independent living. You might be too old for many TLP programs but there are other options for full adults in need as well. Dialing 2-1-1 might be a good way to start since they often have local resources to help those in need. We are here to listen and help however we can if you do need more assistance as well.

      Hi there,

      You mentioned that you are an adult, we assume that means you are over 18 and therefore you can move out if you want to and you won’t be considered a runaway. As a legal adult, you have a right to make your own decisions about where you live. We can help you make a plan for how to deal with your situation and help you find resources to land on your feet. Having a plan for where you will live and how you will survive once you move out can be very helpful. Moving can be a huge step, and you don’t have to be alone. Some steps you can take towards independence might be to find employment if you don’t have an income, or to save up money for moving expenses. It can also be helpful to research rents in your area, find a roommate, or make a budget. Another thing you might want to consider is what kinds of things you depend on your parents for currently such as tuition expenses for school, or health insurance, and whether they would continue to provide those things after you leave. There may be social service agencies in your area that can help meet some of these needs, such as Transitional Living Programs, a kind of shelter where young adults can live and get services to help them transition to independent living. We are here to listen and help however we can.

      If you would like to discuss any of these topics further or would like some resources, please reach out to us via chat or call! We hope to hear from you soon.

      Stay strong,

    I have moments where I make my mom INSANE... and she always says "I am so sick of you". And I am the oldest child... 12 years old. I am always being yelled at blamed for called a liar and so on. I want to run away for at least 3 whole weeks maybe more. I always think that if I run away everything will be better. But then they always say " we would be sooo miserable without you" ,and I have a hard time believing it. Even though I am a Christian... And on top of that I am starting to hit purperty. So I can get very emotional. That is even worse when I am emotionally sad or mad... WHY DO I FEEL LIKE MY WHOLE FAMILY HATES ME!!!
    I HAVE TO LEAVE

      Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline, we are here to help support and guide you. It sounds like you have been going through a difficult time at home with your parents and have considered running away to get away from it all. You never deserve to be told that you are unwanted from your parents and you are extremely brave for reaching out for help.



      You shared how you have been feeling this for about 3 weeks, so we understand you must feel very strongly about leaving. Some things to consider if you were to runaway is: where you would go, who would you stay with, and how would you financially support yourself? Besides running away, one option is to consider participating in extracurricular activities (sports, theater, writing clubs, etc) at school which would allow you less time away from your parents but still allow you to have a home to go to at the end of the day. Depending on your geographical area, a local Boys & Girls Club (website: www.bgca.org; phone: (404) 487-5700) may be another option that is a safe after school program.



      You mentioned how your parent(s) would be miserable if you were away. Have you thought about sharing with them the reason you want to runaway? One service we offer at NRS is something called a “conference call” where we can be on the phone with both you and your parent to help you have a conversation with your parents. Perhaps that would allow you to share your concern of feeling like your entire family hates you in a safe place. Even a school guidance counselor could be a reliable source that is both confidential and safe. Sometimes we all need an extra person to help us communicate our thoughts better.



      If you should have any other questions or concerns, we are a confidential, available resource 24/7 through the forum, online chat, or call anytime at 1-800-RUNAWAY.



      We wish you the very best,

      NRS

          Hi there,
          Thank you for writing to us here at National Runaway Safeline (NRS). We understand it takes great courage to reach out, and we appreciate you sharing a little bit about what’s going on. It seems there is a lot that you are faced with right now and you’re feeling like leaving is one of your only options. It seems you want to know some information on runaway laws.
          While we are not experts on the law, 18 is generally the age that an individual may leave home without parent permission. If you are under 18 and leave home, your parent/guardian may file you as a runaway and you may be returned home. Also, those you stay with may run the risk of being charged with harboring a runaway. For more specifics on the law, the local non-emergency police or legal aid may better answer legal questions.
          The easiest way to leave home is with your parents' permission. We understand that might be challenging, however, maybe there’s another family member, relative, or a family friend who could help to communicate how you’re feeling to your parents. The second way is through Child Protective Services if safety is a concern. Lastly, you can also look into emancipation options. In most states you need to be at least 16 to be considered and demonstrate that you can support yourself financially and independently. Emancipation often can be a lengthy process and may even cost some money for court fees. We would be happy to look into legal resources if that’s something you are considering.
          You don't deserve to be hurt in any way. 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.
          We are here as support to help through this challenging time. We can best help by phone or chat as NRS is unable to respond more than twice by email to assist you. If you would like to talk more in detail please call or chat soon.
          Our contact information is 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929); www.1800runaway.org (click on the chat button). If you would like to look into further emotional support options, you can text with a crisis worker at the National Alliance on Mental Illness 24/7 by texting "NAMI" to 741741.
          If you are at risk of any danger or feeling unsafe, we encourage you to reach out to 911 or seek emergency assistance immediately.
          Be safe,
          NRS
