People getting hurt?
Sometimes in families, kids or parents get hurt.
When people get really upset, they have a lot of feelings. It’s OK to have strong feelings, but it’s not OK to hurt people. That rule is the same for both kids and grown-ups.
If someone in your family is in DANGER of getting hurt
- Call 9-1-1
(if you can, go to another room or a neighbour’s place to call).
- Don’t get in the middle or try to protect the person who is being hurt.
- Stay away, and find a safe place in the house or at a neighbour’s.
If you are not feeling safe at home:
- Tell someone—your teacher, school counsellor, doctor,
or another grown-up that you trust, like the parent
of a good friend.
- Call the Help Line for Children, at 310-1234.
