Hitchhiking - November 26th 2017, 11:40 PM

My parents told me to leave and I have no where to go. I've made up my mind to hitchhike and get out of the state. I'm not changing my mind, and I am very aware it's dangerous. If anyone has any hitchhiking/trainhopping/running away advice please let me know, especially if you know how I can continue my education.

Hey there,

Firstly, I don't think anyone here will give you tips on how to hitchhike because there really are no safe tips. Hitchhiking is extremely dangerous.

If you are in the USA, your parents have a legal obligation to take care of you until you are of age. In most instances, that means that they have to provide for you until you are 18. I would suggest that you contact social services or the police about this situation. If your parents are neglecting you in anyway they should be able to help you.

I know this might not be the ideal option but, it would likely be a lot safer than hitchhiking. They would likely be able to help you figure out a living situation.

I know my city public transportation system has this thing where if someone says to the bus driver "I need a safe place" the driver will take them to a safe place for free and these places include a domestic violence shelter, a homeless shelter and a few other places as well. Your city might have something like that and so, if you have the means, maybe you could check google.

Best regards.

Hello and welcome to teenhelp. Thank you so much for coming on and telling us about this and joining.
I am so sorry that you are having a hard time right now. You do not want to hitchhike, it doesn't matter what is going on at home and I understand and not everybody gets along. Are you able to go to a friends house or a family member house like a aunt and uncle's or grandparents that you can call or call a friend and see if they can come and get you and let them know that you need to get out of you're house?
Hitchhiking is not the answer because you have very dangerous people who will pick you up and you don't know what will happen, okay.
I agree with what's said up about if you need help you can call the police or you can friend and have you're friends parents call somebody to see if they can call for help for you. I hope that you will be okay soon. And you are welcome to post more when you need to. I wish you the best. Lots of Hugs.
