From Pat / 26 June 2020


Hello, you are very welcome to Ask Pat.

You are asking us how to get people to stop calling you severe bullying names.

Childline would be concerned for you if you are being called severe bullying names. No one has the right to do that to you. It is important that your rights as a child are met and your rights include being safe and happy.

You would have the right to tell someone that you feel comfortable talking to, about what is going on. This person could be a parent, another family relation or any other grown up you are happy to talk to. The Childline website has some articles on friendships and bullying which you may find useful;
