Strengths-Based Parenting Resource

Strengths-Based Parenting is an approach that glances at the weaknesses and gazes at the strengths. This is the approach St. Joseph’s Indian School uses in all facets of our work. Staff receive specific training to ensure consistency across the organization.

Handling Homesickness Resource

Feelings of homesickness are common. Here parents and their children who prepare to handle homesickness offer some insights into making the transition to residential school more comfortable for everyone. Always know that your child’s family service counselor is available to assist you with this.
