CALLUM:Well, I was always told to be polite and have respect and so on, but they tried to let me make my own mistakes. I think it was because they wanted me to be able to stand up for myself.
VICKI:Well, yes - being able to stand up for yourself, being independent and confident is important!
CALLUM:Yeah, you need to stand up for yourself in this world.
VICKI:Anyway, what about brothers and sisters? Do you have any?
CALLUM:Yes I've got an older brother and a younger sister.
VICKI:Do you get on with them?
CALLUM:Yes, we get on well - we have a great time when we see each other.
VICKI:So you get on well now, but what about when you were children? Didn't you ever use to fight?
CALLUM:Well sometimes of course, but even as children we got on quite well - we used to play together a lot.
