I've just had a small talk with someone and he asked me "Brauchst du Hilfe dabei?" and it was completely understandable of course and the conversation kept going on but after that I was thinking about the question myself if it was correct or not. Then I wanted to ask the question here.
Normally, I would say "Brauchst du Hilfe damit?" because in my mind I would've said it in English like "Do you need help with it?". Therefore I would use "damit" since I would use "with it" in English counterpart obviously but when I check with online translators and do some sentence search, I saw that it's mostly used with "dabei".
Any ideas why and would it be normal to use damit instead?
