Crucial Conversations are those discussions we need to have as a community and as parents, to keep our friends, neighbors and loved ones safe. These are also conversations that need to be addressed from a Christian perspective. What can we do to prevent those we love from becoming addicted to opioids? How can we help those who have already become addicted? What are steps that I can take to keep myself and my loved ones safe from trafficking? How do we handle social media, from a Christian perspective? How do we make sure those we love KNOW that they are valued and loved, and give them hope when they fall into depression or are anxious? How can we be Jesus to those we know and love?

Below you will find links to articles and resources that we hope will be helpful as you navigate parenting challenges. For more information, contact Kim VanHuffel at kvanhuffel@stjoanofarcpowell.org.
