There are a number of steps you can take to STAY SAFE online:
- Don’t share personal information or images with people you don’t know.
- Don’t accept a friend request from someone you don’t know – not everyone online is who they say they are.
- Set privacy settings on all devices so that only people you know can view your account.
- Don’t post anything online that you are not happy to be shared, particularly nude or nearly nude images or videos. It may seem like a bit of fun with friends at the time but there is always a chance those images could be shared or get into the wrong hands and could lead to harmful situations such as stalking, abuse or blackmail.
- If someone has made you feel uncomfortable or you have had disturbing interaction online, tell police or a trusted adult. You can ring the police on 101 or for help or contact us we are always here to listen and support you.
- If you receive any inappropriate images or links, it is important that you do not forward it to anyone else. Contact police or tell a trusted adult immediately. By doing this you could help prevent further such incidents.
Why do children exhibit challenging behaviour?
We all communicate through our behaviour whether we realise it or not. For example, an infant may cry when it is hungry or wet, just like an adult may yawn when he is bored at work. A child’s problematic behaviour is usually a sign that they are upset or that something is not right and they are having trouble communicating that either because they don’t know what they feel or they don’t have the right way to tell us. For example a child might be screaming because they don’t want to do something or they might feel unsafe or out of control, so they take inappropriate action over the things they can control (e.g. like kicking someone or being obsessive about a mobile phone).

How can we help?
Behaviour clinics are set up to provide time and space for you to discuss the problem and find solutions to help prevent and manage behaviours. This is done by providing advice, guidance, support, information leaflets and by teaching coping skills, strategies and techniques.
