Hi there, you are very welcome to Ask Pat.


You are telling us that your Mum is threatening to wallop you and to assault you. She also tells you that you do things wrong. You mention that you are afraid of protests on the street, you say you are afraid of the people that have threatened to kill you.


It is understandable that you are feeling very afraid for your life.  No one has the right to make you feel like this. No one has the right to hurt you or threaten you in any way and we would be very concerned that this has happened to you. It is wrong to hurt or threaten a child or young person in any way.


As a child you have the right to be safe and to be happy. It doesn’t sound like you are happy from what you are telling us.  You have the right to be heard which means you have the right to tell someone what is going on in your life.
