Don't do anything hasty. If you like write down "your knowledge" (date and what)
Very important: get yourself some help!
Tell what you have seen an adult, call police emergency number (Switzerland 117/ Austria 133/ Germany 110) or call an information center that you have found out under
addressesand get counseling yourself.
Tell the person who is afflicted that you have read and heard that a lot of children and teenagers are victims of abuse and violence and that you believe what they are telling you.
Don't give any promises you can't keep.
Ensure the afflicted person that you will not undertake any action without their knowledge.
Encourage them to break their silence and talk about their experiences and getting themselves some help.
Inform them that every child/teenager has the right to be helped and that further abuse can be stopped if the silence will be broken.
