Photo supplied Solutions, with the Citizens Advice Bureau IF YOU are between fve- and 14-years-old and have a problem you feel you can’t talk about with someone you know, try Kidsline. Growing up is not always easy and today young peo- ple are facing lots of challenges and stresses that put a strain on their coping skills. Sometimes they can feel very alone and just need someone, other than a friend or parent, to talk to. Kidsline, best described as a free brief-intervention service, is run by youth volunteers and takes phone calls from 4-6pm on weekdays. Children and young teenagers all over the country can call the service for free: 0800 Kidsline (0800-543- 754). Kidsline Buddies receive training on a range of top- ics and counselling skills. They’re trained by qualifed adult counsellors and are supervised while on duty. They listen because they care about making a differ- ence to the kids who ring. It’s not always easy to talk about things that are diffcult for us. Sometimes the toughest thing about feelings is sharing them with others. Sharing feelings helps when they are good, or not so good. It also helps us become more connected to people we care about and who care about us. Your local Citizens Advice Bureau can give you lots more information and has a pamphlet available called Kidsline – it helps to talk. Solutions is a column from the Pakuranga Citizens ■ Advice Bureau, Library Building, Aylesbury Street, phone 576-8331, or Botany CAB on 271-5382, or 0800- 367-222.
