What should my parents or other adults do if they suspect I'm being abused?
Parents, teachers and others close to you may– as part of their everyday monitoring of you – realise something is “wrong”. If so, they will try and talk to you about what’s happening in your life, and it’s a good idea to tell them as much as you can.
Sometimes, though, children are great actors, so that even the most caring, attentive parents can’t see or decipher the hints their children may be giving. If this happens, you may have to open the discussion yourself and tell them what is troubling you.
