CCHS Parent Group

It is our belief that parents are the ones who must take the lead in preventing their children from getting mixed up with drugs, alcohol, destructive behaviors as well supporting their children through other concerns. This parent led group is intended to supplement parent-child discussion and parent to parent communication, support, education and initiative. All Central Catholic parents, and guardians are welcome to join. Please join us every first Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Clifford Brown Library (Please check the monthly email blast or daily bulletin to confirm meeting time and place).  

Fun fact for the year: Parents who allow their children to drink alcohol, which may be motivated by the best intentions, can expect serious negative consequences for their child. When parents bargain on the issue of underage alcohol consumption, their children are:

  • More than three times more likely to be a causality of drinking and driving
  • Nearly two and a half times more likely to use an illicit drug
  • More than three times more likely to report experiencing a consequence directly related to their use of alcohol or other drugs, i.e. difficulty in school, problems with friends.
