Helpline manager for Northern Ireland, David Burns, said: "The helpline team works tirelessly taking calls from Northern Ireland and across the UK.
"We never know what exactly will be on the end of the next call, so we have to be prepared for any eventuality.
"The caller could be a mum saying their ex had not returned the children, or a claim that a child is being bullied."
Adults concerned about a child can contact the NSPCC helpline 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on 0808 800 5000.
