I'm 14 years old (15 at the end of April). This is hard to say but I've been abused by my mom since I was 6 years old. I recently contacted DSS and a worker came over here to investigate and I told her EVERYTHING but then that night my mom choked me REALLY BAD so I called my sister and told her and she called 911. And they just let it go. But then the next day the same DSS worker came over and talked to my mom and my nephews (because they live with us also) and some how my mom convinced the worker that she's not hurting us!!! It's a lie tho I don't know how she does it but she's good. And I have so many problems from this I have depression I cut myself and I think I might have anxiety. And I also homeschool but I don't get a good education at all!!! I don't learn a thing!! Well one night I convinced my mom that she should let me go stay with my other sister in Texas for the summer (and plan on after that trying to live there) and she said yes!!! Well now she backed out and said no and I said that I'd get emancipated if she said no. And in South Dakota u can be 14 to get emancipated. But I'm not living with my sister right now so I don't know if they would let me get emancipated
Does anyone know if they would let me still since my sister would take me in and my mom is abusive???So my sister said to get a bus ticket and come down after my birthday and she would pay for half of it. And I read on a website if u runaway and your parents call the police and they find you but they see that your living in a good home and you want to stay that they'll let you live there. Is that true?? Also if I take a bus down to Texas I then want to get emancipated because then I'll be living with her so they would let me get emancipated right?? I really NEED some awnsers and HELP PLEASE!!! I don't know what to do I've almost commited suicide 3 times. If I have to live here for 3 more years I know I'll end up killing myself and I REALLY DON'T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN
Oh and I've called the child abuse hotline they just give u a number to your county and I've already tried that and they do NOTHING!!! I've had soooo many people call and report my mom until they finally came over but even then they did absolutally NOTHING. PLEASE HELP ME!!
