If you’ve answered YesSometimes or Don’t Know to any…
Any behaviour that makes someone else feel sad, scared or bad about themselves is not okay.  It can be very difficult to know what to do in this situation.  Take steps to keep safe and find someone to talk to about what is happening, a Helpline could help if you do not have a trusted adult to speak to. There is more information in our What you should know section.
If answered No to everything…
It’s good that these things are not a problem at home, if however you are still worried you could call a helpline, who can talk about your personal situation, in confidence, and give you advice on keeping safe.  You can also get more information in our get help and What you should know sections.
