I am a 17 year old mother, four of the kids in my house have ran away and been brought back because of emotional and physical abuse, I have many witnesses and my parents have my siblings lie about it when cps has been involved, it is an unsafe environment at my parents house & I have 7 other siblings. I need to move out some how with my son, I have a job and they steal all of my money so that I can't spend it and I won't have a way to provide for my son so that I can't leave with him. I don't know what I can do..
If it is a truly abusive situation, let a counselor at school, a teacher, the police, a minister...someone...know. If they don't take action call Children's Protective Services know right away at 740-652-7887.
