I'm worried about a grown-up's behaviour

If you're worried about a grown-up's behaviour towards you or someone else, it's important to speak up. It doesn’t matter if it is a teacher, parent, sport coach or any other adult – they must not harm or abuse you physically or emotionally.  

If you want to talk to someone but an adult is telling you not to or making you keep secrets, then they might be trying to hide what they are doing.

When you tell someone about a grown-up’s behaviour, that person should make sure it remains confidential so nothing bad can happen to you.
