Answer

Hi there! 

Welcome to Ask Alex, a safe space where young people can ask questions regarding their lives. Thank you for your question; you have asked us about education issues.  

There are lots of different challenges people face around education. These can include difficulties with a certain subject or teacher, the business of the school environment, or being able to have the confidence/motivation to get into school each morning.

School can be difficult for many students; we wonder what makes it difficult for you. Do you have a trusted adult to talk to about the issues you are facing? Maybe a parent, sports coach, or a kind teacher in your school? Adults can help support us and find solutions for things we find tricky.  

We have some articles on specific educational topics available on our website which you may find useful, www.childline.ie/education-and-work/ . 

If you would like to chat about your issue in more detail, you are very welcome to call us at our free-phone service on1800 66 66 66or through our webchat service, by clicking on the purple Messenger circle at www.childline.ie. Childline services are free and confidential, and are available 24 hours, 7 days a week.   

We are always here to listen and support you, any time for any reason.  

Take care of yourself, we hope to hear from you again,

Alex
