What to know

Being a parent is one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs in the world but it can be overwhelming at times.

Most parents want to do a good job of raising their children. However, unlike other jobs where you get special training, most parents are left to do the best they can with what they know from their own experience. There’s no need to feel that you are all alone or that no one cares. The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline is always here to help you.

The Hotline is staffed by degreed, professional counselors who are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. All calls are anonymous and toll-free.

Call 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) then push 1 to talk to a Hotline Counselor.

The Hotline receives calls from throughout the United States, Canada, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam and Puerto Rico. Communication in 170 languages is available through state-of-the-art technology that allows three-way conversations between the Hotline counselor, the caller, and a professional translator.
