Parent Problems

There are many reasons why families split up and it is a difficult time for everyone. There might be fights or arguments at home which make you feel unhappy, confused and scared. When your family splits up it can mean that changes are going to take place, like having to live with only one parent or not seeing one parent much anymore.

Remember its parents who decide to separate, it’s their decision and something you could not have stopped.

It’s certainly not your fault. They are separating from each other not you. You are not alone and talking about how you feel can make you feel better.

If you can, talk to both of your parents/carers about how you feel.  If you don't want to talk to your parents/carers find a teacher or a close grown-up family friend who you trust.

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