As children we are told to immediately tell someone if we think someone is being hurt, harmed, or abused. But what if you're the one being hurt and harmed?
Recognising that you are being abused is the most important step. Here's what you must do:
Talk to a trusted adult in person.
Talk to a trusted adult on the phone.
Write a note, an email, or send a letter to the trusted adult.
Tell someone at school, like a school counselor, school nurse, teacher, or coach.
Tell a friend's mom or dad, big brother, or big sister.
Tell someone who answers the phone at a hotline service, such as 1-800-4-A-CHILDhotline is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year, or in the UAE you can call 116111. Your call is private and the people who answer the phone are trained to help. They also have a website where you can get help: www.childhelp.org/pages/help-for-kids.
If you know someone else who you think might be being abused, you can help by telling your parent or another adult.
