Counseling Corner

Dear Parents,

I would like to take some time to share with you about Holy Family’s Counseling Program.  As you know, Holy Family School has a counseling program that your child can take advantage of throughout the school year. I will use this space in the newsletter to provide some information and resources about ways you can continue to support your child throughout their school year.  I have been asked, “How do I talk to my child about whether they want to see you or not?” The following are a few ideas you are welcomed to draw from, especially with the adolescent age group:

1) “Do you feel like you can use some extra support at school to talk to someone besides your teacher or parent, about things going on at school?”
2) “Do you feel you can benefit from learning some tools or techniques to manage stress with school?“
3) “Can you use support at school to learn how to stay on task and improve your performance as a student, whether it be getting organized, how to communicate with your teacher, and / or how to become a better student?”

If you would like to have a conversation about this topic, feel free to call me at my direct phone number 626-403-6195. I would be happy to discuss and I understand the individuality of each student. Furthermore, please click on this this article link Rude vs Mean vs Bullying, which I found interesting and informative. Enjoy!

Thank you,
