This animation has been produced as part of our annual Parents in Sport Week campaign to help parents understand their role in keeping children safe in sport.
We hear Ellie's story, a young athlete who has a negative experience and whose parents aren't sure how to support her.
Through the course of the video, we look at what parents can do to help keep their child safe and who they can turn to for help if something is wrong.
