Advice for Children

If someone is hurting or upsetting you or making you feel scared, it is not your fault.

You are not alone; there are people who can help you and stop people from making you feel scared or hurt.

You may be frightened of the person hurting you or your friends, but there are things you can do to get help and make it better.

This includes someone who may be frightening you on the Internet or on your mobile.


You should:

  • Tell someone you trust, such as your friends, teachers, parents or grandparents. Other people at school may be able to help.
  • Let people help to make things better by stopping the person from hurting you or your friends.


You shouldn’t:

  • Feel embarrassed or alone.
  • Feel that it is your fault or that you are to blame for someone hurting, frightening or touching you.
  • Keep it a secret.
  • Feel you have no one to turn to – people are there to help.
