Parents and carers

Our parents and carers section is for anyone with parental responsibility of a child or young person, a child's relatives, friends and neighbours who need information or advice.

Please be aware that all the information in this section is currently under review. If the information that you are looking for is not here, or if you have any queries about anything on our website, please contact us.

Concerns about a child

If you are suspicious or have any concerns that a child is suffering or is likely to suffer significant harm, including any form of mistreatment or abuse, please see the reporting concerns section of our website. 

The CBBC stay safe web pages contain useful resources and guidance for children and young people on many subjects, including an internet safety quiz, advice on child sexual exploitation (CSE), bullying, how to stay safe online and much more.
