General Family Tools
KidsHealth Website and United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)  Resources

KidsHealth’s award-winning, doctor-reviewed, family-friendly content has been a trusted resource since 1995 by children’s hospitals and schools across the country. Through their websites and partnerships with select organizations, KidsHealth helps hundreds of millions of parents, caregivers, kids, and teens with answers on a wide range of health and family topics.

Jesuit is providing these resources as a practical way to help parents start conversations around racism and Anti-Semitism. Please note that Kidshealth.org is not a Catholic resource though it does provide guidance to help parents talk about race which is in line with Catholic Social Teaching.

In addition, we also have included educational resources from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) which provide suggestions for a Catholic-centered, activity-based approach to talking to children of all ages about combatting racism.

Alateen Group Meetings
What is Alateen?

Alateen is for young people whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking. It provides a safe place for teens to figure out how they may have been affected by the disease of alcoholism and to discover new ways of living. Alateen is a place where members come together in a peer-based group to share experiences, strength, and hope with each other. Alateen is not for teenagers seeking help for their own drinking or drug problems and is not a therapy program.

Student Wellness
Rest. Restore. Refuel.

The holiday season, including weeks where your son is not in school, is an opportunity to listen for clues indicating that he needs help with mental health concerns.  Being even more attentive or intentional during these “breaks” is also great practice for when your son leaves home for pursuits after high school and returns home for holiday gatherings. Holidays are a golden opportunity to take notice.
