Children and adolescents

You can get help!

Sometimes adults or older children or adolescents harass, beat, mistreat or abuse boys or girls by means of words, glances or bodily contact. If you have experienced such a thing, it feels good to confide this to somebody! Even if they forbade you to talk about this - you may get help at any time!

You are entitled to protection and support!

Try to talk to a person in whom you trust. If you want to, you may also go to an advice centre or get advice and support over the telephone or online without having to disclose your name.
