Christmas can be a difficult time for some families. There may be more arguments and more shouting at home. Your parents or carers may be feeling more stressed than usual.
You may also have to spend time with people you don’t like. You don’t have to go through any of these thing alone.
Christmas may be a painful time if it brings up memories of losing someone you really loved who is no longer here. Maybe there’s someone who can’t be with you at Christmas for other reasons and you're really missing them. Talking about these feelings with a safe adult can really help.
You could be missing your school friends or a teacher you like who is really supportive of you. It may feel that your family doesn’t get you in the same way. However, Childline is always here to listen to you.
This Christmas may be harder than normal for some families because of money problems, which can cause parents or carers to feel stressed. This could make celebrating Christmas more difficult.
