Ask Sam

Something on your mind? Ask Sam is ChildLine’s problem page where you can read letters from other young people. You can also ask for advice yourself and Sam might choose your letter to include below.

Find out more about Ask Sam.

Sam can only choose a few letters each week.

If you need a private reply you can contact a counsellor for free by calling 0800 1111 or talk online.

Message from Sam...  Ask Sam

Relationships can be great, but they can also be upsetting if the person you’re with isn’t right for you or when you want to be in a relationship but aren’t. With Valentine’s day coming up I’d be really interested in hearing about your problems with relationships.

Remember that I only answer a handful of the letters I get each week, so if you want someone to respond you need to make an account and talk to a counsellor.
