How can I help my child recognise when they feel unsafe?


Your body is clever. When it gets scared it reacts. This is your body trying to tell you that you feel unsafe like when your hair stands on end or parts of your body might feel wobbly like a jelly.  These are called Early Warning Signs. Safety Net is a charity that works with families, in schools and in local communities. Safety Net’s aim is to ensure all children and young people are aware that they have the right to feel and be safe, and that they can get help when they need it.

Safety Net has a children’s website full of tips and advice written by children. Take a look at this short film made by children telling others how they can spot their Early Warning Signs.
