Running away may sound tempting sometimes. But honestly it won't solve any problems just cause bigger problems. Been there done that.

Running away is also dangerous for you. You never know who is out there and without food and a hot drink to sustain you, you'll feel worse.

If you're in the UK, contact Childline: https://www.childline.org.uk/

If you're in US or Canada, contact ChildHelp: https://www.childhelp.org/hotline/

The greatest female power is empathy to create relationships on a personal level. It's better for a woman to come across as more nurturing, more warm, and that is going to lend more success to her than for a man doing the same thing.

Tbh I think why not is a pretty poor reason to run. Other members gave you some good advice, Id take it. Im gonna go out and say you probably dont have a clue what its like on the run. The shit youll do, have to do, need to do, forced to do, and the people in your life when on the run wont give a shit about you either.

Id just suck it up and deal with it. But if it becomes abusive Id use one of the links that was posted

Good luck

Ever think that out there on the run
is more terrible than sticking it out at
home at least for a few more years?
Well u better give it another thought
before u decide to run cause to a run
away its lonesome and dangerous. If
ur home life is hectic and it is troubling
u then talk with someone outside of ur
family for some support.

You need to seriously consider your options. Why do you want to leave? If you are being abused? (verbal abuse is a thing) And where will you go? Even if it's a shelter you need to have a plan. Don't just start running down the street.

Running away is really a bad idea.

Firstly, I don't know how you will earn money. Unless you are 14 (Or legal working age), I guess you could like work at McDonald's or something. But you probably wouldn't have enough money to buy food.

Secondly, you will need some kind of shelter. Camping will not serve your entire life.

Thirdly, the police are looking for you. So if the police find you, you will be in a lot of trouble with your parents.

Unless you really want to, just don't run away. Talk to your parents.

My name is Adrian, I am 14 years old, dunno if I am gay or str8 (I am probably more of straight). I am a geek, and I am proud of it. I love computers, and all kinds of nerdy technology.

Running away isn't really a good solution. That's cause you always carry your probs in your bagage with you, even if you physically are leave your probs, your family in your case, behind.

You first have to figure out away, to solve your prob with your family, to get at least rid of them on the mental level .

You've to assure they defintely know, what trouble their behavior causes to or in you. They really have to know, how's your pov on them.

If you've really reached the point considering running away, the consequences which come along with it should not really bother you anymore.

So, you can also confront your family with the brutal truth of your view on them and make it clear that they know exactly how you are currently see them.

If that doesn't help, plan your run-away-thing more realistically.

For example, by considering as a consequence to be conveyed as a foster child in another family. That's what I would say to the people of childcare as well, so that they take your problem very seriously.

This^^
And IF its an abuse thing I can understand why, but theres also (usually) options other than running.

But yes, a plan is a key to your success here.

If you think about it, running away can never truly solve anything. it is a short term solution to a long term problem, i was at a point one time thinking about it but i decided against it because speaking up was better than running

You have a home and the safety and protection you need. Also food, clothing and a place to be clean and warm. Your family life may not be ideal but you are a family. You may want to even seek some counseling to help you cope.

I am gay and happy with that.
I love talking to people very open & willing to listen.
I am also glad to try help with questions or problems.
Hit me up for anything. I promise I don't bite.

Runaways experience a lot of abuse, I don't recommend it, and good foster care parents are rare as well.

Many stories of abuse or neglect from foster care situations exist on these forums alone.

Unless your physical safety and health is endagnered, don't do it. When I was getting beatings I didn't run away because it really wasnt't worth the risk in my situation. And running away because your parents yell at you? It's really not worth it. They have the right to call police if you run away and when the policeman asks you why you ran away and you said that your parents yelled at you, you might diminish your chances of them helping if you experience some other, more immediately dangerous type of abuse from your parents.

By running away you expose yourself to unnecessary danger and in my opinion, doing it because you get yelled at often is not worth the risk.
