  School is biggest worry for kids
Updated 19 January 2004, 09.22
School is a big worry for kids
Schoolwork and falling out with your pals are the biggest worries for children aged between 11 and 16.

The survey by the NSPCC also showed that kids often don't have anyone to talk to about their problems.

A lack of money, worrying about drugs and even bullying aren't as a big a deal for children as school stuff.

The NSPCC has now started a campaign called Someone To Turn To, backed by celebs like Thierry Henry, singer Ms Dynamite and Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox.

The charity wants the government to make sure there are expert people in schools who kids can talk over their problems with.

They're worried that too many children don't talk about their problems because they're too confused or scared to bring them up.

The NSPCC think if their campaign is a success it will help kids and their parents deal with problems better.
