Hi, people.
I have text in my book.

I could tell Ashley was upset when she came home, but I didn't know why. I figured it was because Mom had yelled at her about The Creep things. Sam and I talked a little about it during the Avalanche game, but he didn't get on me too much.

What does it mean "get on" in this context?
Thanks in advance.

"Get on" in this usage means "to berate, tease or belittle". Think also "pick on".
