    Can I put myself into foster care without my mums consent?
    I'm 15 years of age but I will be 16 in a couple days and I hate living at home, I've ran away many times before I've been beaten up by my mum and she threatens to kill me; today I want to run away but this time I don't plan on being found alive. I just cannot take it no more!
    I need help.

    No, you cannot put yourself in foster care. However, if you are being abused you can contact your local CPS and tell them, anonymously, what is going on and they will investigate.

    If you are in school at the moment, you can talk to your school counselor. They will do some research and report abuse if it is there.

    No, you can report any abuse to police and children's services, what has CPS seen or done when you reported abuse to them.

    Foster care is not always easy to get into, often there may be group homes, or even detention if you keep running away, a\

    Go to the Police, show them proof of the beatings, ask to be removed from the home. This varies by State.

    Where are you?

    Where is your father?
