As you grow older, start to become more independent and make your own decisions, you may start to keep things to yourself a bit more.
Family members don't need to know all the details about what’s going on in your life – but they do like to know where you are going, what time you will be home or when you will be leaving for home. Read our tips for personal safety.
The adults in your life can sometimes decide to split up, separate or divorce from one another - for a huge variety of reasons. But sometimes for months before that happens, things can be really tough, with shouting, arguments and even worse.
There is nothing wrong with talking through family problems with another adult. This could be a teacher, tutor, counsellor or a youth support worker. The important point is that you talk to someone that you trust, and to not blame yourself for what's happening in your family.
