I’m scared of being alone

Many children find it hard to do be away from their parents, like going to school or staying at a friend’s house. It can make them feel frightened and unhappy, but learning to be away from our parents is part of growing up. These feelings are quite normal and you can learn to be brave.

Learning to make friends and being away from home are things we all have to do, and extra help can make all the difference. Tell a grown up who can help make it easier for you.

Remember if the person you first speak to does not help or does not believe you then speak to someone else.
