Thank you for contacting us

Nobody would have the right to call you names and we would be concerned that this was happening for you. You mention emotional abuse and this is something that is also concerning to us. Name calling is not a nice thing and can leave anyone feeling very hurt… It is understandable to question this and it sounds like there might be quite a bit going on for you presently.

You do have the right to talk to someone about how you are feeling.

It would be helpful for us to support you better by understanding a little more around what is happening.

We are open 24 hours a day here at Childine and welcome the chance to chat with you some more in relation to this. You can contact us at 1800 666 666 or through our online service at
