Online Safety

How to Report Things That Worry You

Being online and using the internet is just like being in the real world - you can chat to people, play games and share pictures. But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say nasty things to you which upset you, or you may see something that you don’t like.

If this happens, you must remember that it’s not your fault.

Remember to save any messages that have upset you so you can show them to a trusted adult - they will be able to help, and they will be able to give you good advice. Never worry about getting in trouble - you aren’t the one who has done anything wrong.

If you don’t want to talk to a trusted adult, you may want to chat to someone else about how you feel. ChildLine is a website where you can have a private 1-2-1 chat with a counsellor who will listen to you and not judge you. You can also call them for free on 0800 1111.
