It is not a sign of weakness to ask for or accept help from others; it is actually a strength and can be very difficult to do. However, it is very important to tell others when you need help and what help you need from them. For example, you may just need them to listen to you without judging, interrupting, or “fixing” it for you. You may also need them to stand by you or go with you to tell an adult who can help. You may also need your friend to tell for you.
It may help to let others, such as parents, know what isn’t helpful, For instance, it may not help if they yell or get upset when you tell them things. You can let them know, then, that it would help you if they remain calm when you share things with them.
