In a few hours I am likely getting kicked out. My parents have threatened to call the cops and have them take me away if I don't leave willingly by morning. What do I do?
I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
Do you have any sense of what's going through their heads? I'm not saying their reasons are good -they probably aren't- but they may hold a clue as to how to get out of this.
since you're a minor they can't just kick you out. 17 is that age where you feel like an adult and people start treating you like one but legally speaking you're still a child.
you should have called the police when he hit you
>My parents have threatened to call the cops and have them take me away if I don't leave willingly by morning.
kek, you're 17. That's not how that works. They have to provide for you or else the cops haul them away.
So let's get the facts straight.
You're a minor being threatened to get kicked out if the house by your parents. You're golden on that front they legally cant pick you out.
Your dad instigated and hit you. You hit him back in self defence and they're threatening YOU with cops?
Your dad has abused you before, you said you were scared of him. THEY should be scared of cop calls, not you
Went through a similar thing recently, 19, Managed to temporarily work it out by just sucking up to cunt mothers narcissistic bullshit. Its not going to last long but hoping it buys me enough time to figure out what to do next. Good luck OP, best thing to do is try and get some kind of regular income and prepare for the inevitable.
OP shit sucks, I (20) ended up homeless in california because my crazy aunt was my boss and refused to pay me even though I made her like 60,000$ in the 6 months I was there. I had a second job that ended up being my only one. My advice is to keep the bare minimum, here was my pack list after I threw everything away
>1 Duffel Bag
>2 dress shirts
>2 pairs slacks
>1 pair sweats
>5 plain t-shirts
>2 pairs of pants
>1 winter jacket
>(200ml?) hair gel
>1 body wash
>50 ml cologne
>1 box of tissues
>1 Laptop charger
>1 Handheld flashlight
>1 Laundry bag
>The smallest bottle of detergent I could find
>1 box dryer sheets
>3 pairs of shoes
I slept in my car, I used money from my job to pay bills and for a gym membership where I showered, did my hair, changed clothes. I have pretty expensive clothes and had a tailor so I wasn't worried about their construction but you don't need to wash them everyday. I kept my wardrobe in the duffel bags, folding everything at the laundromat. I would go to coffee shops and try to find a place to sit (which is hell in SV because they are so overcrowded I would go to 2 or 3 before finding a place) just to charge your phone and apply to jobs on my laptop. My phone was my alarm clock, I'd put it airplane mode to keep the battery from draining to quickly. Nobody knew I was homeless so you'll be okay, it wasn't hard. I guess keep a journal, write about 3 POSITIVE things that have occured at the end of each day, exercise, try to touch people (hugs, pat as you say hi, playful push, etc..) I also read a bit, I did it before but get a library card and rent books. Put your spare key in your shoe so if you get locked out you aren't fucked. I think I covered everything, you will prolly be allright.
I forgot, keep your passport, laptop, pens, and books in your backpack and never leave them, you go to the bathroom? take it with you, going to get food? take it with you. Don't let it leave your sight, if you need to leave it behind, put it in your trunk, lock your doors.
