What To Say When Your Teen Tells You About Abuse

Teen Abuse

Reading time: 6 minutes

Suitable for: Families of secondary-age children

We want our children to live safe and happy lives. However, research by the NSPCC shows that around 1 in 20 children in the UK are sexually abused. This abuse is normally carried out by someone the child knows and can happen online or in person.

In this Quick Read, we’ll explain:

  • Signs that show something could be wrong
  • How to start a conversation with your child
  • What to do if your child talks about abuse
  • Where you can go for further support

There are different types of child abuse, but in this Quick Read, we focus on sexual abuse. For information about other forms of abuse, the NSPCC has a wide range of resources to help.
