Fighting For Our Youth
About Us - Helping Our Youth
St. Frederick - Supporting The Youth
St. Frederick was founded, being a public concerned citizen who had observed increasing issues, pregnancy, and the number of youth who were becoming involved in the criminal justice system.
St. Frederick is helping to keep teens from penetrating the juvenile justice system.
Our vision is serving the youth in our community.
Our Services allows our youth at-risk and their families to meet their purpose and objective for protection, wellbeing, safety, strength, belonging, and success by providing a range of meaningful and individualized services, encouragement and support.
We picture every child and teen growing up in a sound and healthy caring home and within the community.
Each child and teen having the chance of reaching their potential for personal spiritual, mental, and physical growth is our mission.
They need to be honest with themselves and others.
Teens undergo a long, mercurial period of self-realization infused with discovery, experimentation, fear and courage.
Many parents find themselves as helpless bystanders as they watch their children pass through the challenges of their life as a teenager.
Parents can take some comfort in the fact that nearly all teens face the same issues as they mature and prepare to move out into the community.
With St. Frederick efforts in supporting the Youth and helping the parents help the child or teen to prepare to meet the challenges of life by understanding the issues they face and what they need to cultivate, develop, nurture, and succeed.
Teen and Money Issues:
As most teen, they want to have money.
Parents need to teach their teen about responsibilities on financial management.
Children and teens needs to be careful, cautious, and reasonable about spending their money on things that are consumable and short lived.
Many teens buy things just to fit in with the peer group.
They need to learn between wants and needs.
When parents lose their job or things are very tight, many teen have to go to work to get the basics they need.
Being realistic with their desires for materialistic objects, clothes, electronics, and etc, and limit that desires.
Teen Health and Safety Becomes More Critical:
Teenagers are making more of their own choices of what they eat.
Teenagers are faced by others to be part of their group they must do substance abuse or sex.
Being bullied or treated as a loner or an outcast at school can lead to lots of stress.
Many teens turn to truancy, alcohol consumption, tobacco use, and running away.
Teen School Pressures:
School pressures play a very great part in the stress of a teenager.
They are pressured to score high by parents and teachers.
Teens create a lot of pressures themselves.
To help teens to stay away from bad behaviors, they need to focus on school work which will affect them in the future with their family.
Making time and meeting commitments should be rewarding as time goes on.
Teenage Depression, Sadness, Dejection, Misery, and Etc:
These bad feeling teens encounter, can be serious at time, and it can lead to suicide.
There are many different levels of these bad feeling which makes it difficult to detect.
There are many forms of spiritual suicide to actual suicide.
As parents, sometimes they do not recognize the signals the teenager is giving.
We want all parents, teachers, church ministers, and friends to watch for these conditions and to help.
With family, school, church, friends, and peers, maybe a difficult time for coping with stress.
When a teenagers does not know how to funnel their stress, it will build up inside and make them feel inadequate and want to give up.
We all have stress.
But to a teenager who does not balance their lives will have a harder time and it will affect their minds and not think correctly and need help.
Teenager Typecasting and Labeling:
Any type of labeling that is negative is extremely bad, whether it be true or not.
Rumors can damage someone’s reputation.
Rumors can hurt very badly and some have committed suicide
Especially on the internet, texting sites, and social media sites can really hurt someone.
Rumors cause much greater anger to buildup inside of them.
Teens – From Childhood to Teen – Puberty:
Hormones have caused changes and growth of body more physically than at any other time since childhood.
With challenges they face like; acne, menstrual cycles, body odor, emotional feelings of being awesome one day then of anger, sadness, and despair the next.
Puberty is a great and scary time for teens.
From childhood to teen will need a lot of patience and support to get through these growing years.
Teens and Children Being Exposed to News and Entertainment Media:
The video games, internet, television, magazines, movies, music, entertainment, and etc, will influence the wrong ideas about life for a teenager.
Adults and teens are being attacked with little truths, half truths, and many lies.
Media is controlled by money and self interest of adults with greed.
Teenagers are caught by the influences of the media and fall victim to that greed.
Children and teens need to learn that there are many more, better choices.
The video games, internet, television, magazines, movies, music, entertainment, and etc, can be used for good or evil.
Pornography, with its sleazy, corrupt, immoral, dishonest, lewdness, and filth, that is sweeping over the whole earth today, like a horrifying and awful engulfing flood.
Pornography is poison and destroys lives by the millions daily.
Many teens and adults are watching it or reading it and ruining their lives.
It will destroy you if you do watch it.
A great majority of marriages are destroyed, just look at the statistics.
It will rob you of your self-respect, self-worth, and your joy and in time it will make you feel ugly in any relationships.
It will rob you of a sense of the beauties of life.
Pornography will tear you down, make you feel ashamed, and pull you into a lack of progress or activity of evil thoughts and possibly of evil actions.
Stay away from it.
Shun pornography as you would a foul disease, for it is just as deadly”
Teens and Children Want Some Form of Independence:
Becoming adolescent, they began to feel like they are drifting apart from their parents.
Teens feel they a get more frustrated by parental interference and they feel they want their privacy.
Everyone wants to make their own decisions and select their own friends.
They all want their freedom and not have limits enforced.
Children want to be involved in the decisions of the family and not be told what to do.
Parents need to realize the increasing maturity of their teen need to be more involved and participate in the family decisions more.
Parents need to respect their privacy teen and allow them more freedom in a protective environment and need to be able to step in when they need their parents help.
Teens and Sex:
With peer pressure and friends pressuring all teens in having sex.
Schools create lots of sexual pressures for most teens.
Some teens want to experiment without all the facts.
With most all types of media today, they create a relaxed attitude about sex.
Most all videos, movies, music, internet, and etc, gives sex an attitude of, it is no big deal.
The media says that it happens every day, it is beautiful and glamorous, which is a lie; they do not show the consequences afterward.
They do not show the regrets, fears, hardships, trials, suicides, juvenile system, abortions, broken families, lose of real friends, and mistakes goes from bad to worst.
There are consequences in everything, whether doing good or bad; outside marriage, there are consequences of sexual behavior.
You tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are.
Good teens that made a mistake, can always find help with us.
Teens and the Use of Drugs and Alcohol:
Many teenagers see their friends doing drugs or alcohol, so they want to try it.
Once they start it is hard to break off.
They can be pressured to start.
Teens are afraid to be singled out in the group.
Teens will try their dandiest to fit in with friends and groups.
They think they can escape from all of their problems.
Comes with drugs and alcohol, comes legal and health problem.
The feeling of regret brings spiritual suicide to actual suicide because of wrong decisions.
Teenagers need to influence their friends by not choosing to do those types of activities.
Be the teenager that want happiness and joy in their lives and be an example for others.
Teens Interfacing with Other Teens in Social Standing:
Most teenagers, they feel that social standing and the acceptance of peers is very important.
Teenagers seek for more independence and they begin to experiment with looks, styles, and identities, they see they are different from other teenagers.
All teenagers want to fit in somewhere.
They want to gain popularity with their peers.
Parents with too little money or too much money, for teenagers, want some level of social standing with their peers, like; electronic devices, clothing, vehicles, and money to do different activities with their peers, for they think that it will improve their self image and increase their confidence.
Teens Need to Develop Faith in Life:
Having a positive faith will set you apart from others that are doing negative things that will drag you down.
Listening to wrong music, videos, movies, computer games, texting, and etc has a great influence and adds pressure to experiment and cause immoral choices.
These types of influences glorify the teenager to experiment and use of drugs, alcohol and sex.
Because of school kids and friends, some teenagers are made fun of their religious beliefs.
Teenagers that want to follow their religious beliefs, but peer pressure causes them to turn away or what to believe in.
Finding strength in religious goals leads to happiness and joy, otherwise peer pressure will lead to many struggles, misery, and pain.
Teens Need to Seek Help without Being Embarrassed:
Many teens after making the wrong choices feel they are swamped and overwhelmed with their situation and confused.
Parents must be able to listen to their teenager.
Parents need to shoe love and not anger for the mistakes their teen made.
Parents are for the teenager to come to and ask for help.
Parents need to be involved by asking questions and working together and playing together often.
When needed, school counselors, mentoring programs, mental health professionals and your doctor.
Encourage your teenager to know about other helpful resources in their community.
Teens Personal Image:
Teens have a lot of different perceptions about what is right as a personal image.
They feel that their identity depends on what their friend think.
Teens are always comparing themselves to others and friends.
Some are lazy about their appearance and think this is the in thing.
There seems to be a big idea about competition between friends for popularity or just to fit in.
Each and every teen is different from the other, they need to remember who they are and what the group wants them to be or not.
Hope For All Teens:
Learn to know that the Lord loves you and wants you to be happy.
The Lord will take care of you, when you turn to Him with all your heart.
He wants you to come to Him with your sadness, struggles, hardships, and also your joys and triumphs.
He will answer your prayers.
We are here to help you on that path.
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
What Heavenly Father - Wants for You:
Those that keep the commandments of God, for they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual.
Yes, you are awesome.
We are all awesome in the sight of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
We are more than just mortal beings living on a small planet for a short season.
This life is the time for all to prepare to meet God; yes, behold the day of this life is the day for all to perform their labors.
Your Steps on the Stairway to Heaven.
The scriptures clearly warn:
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
When people are acting like a dog chasing cars.
They, like a dog, caught the car, what would they do with it?
Just let it drag them down a road they had not intended to
go down and it beats them up until they finally let go when they get hurt, in jail, into the hospital,
or something worst?
Are any of you chasing cars you really won’t want to?
Are any of you becoming desensitized, numb, or insensitive to what matters most, which is what lasts the longest, and are you slowly going inactive from God,
because of the influences around you?
Are any of you
going with someone who can’t take you to the right place in life, because you are confused about the real definition of love?

What God expects of All Youths
The Bible says,
“God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him”
1 John 4:16, which means that love is a promise, responsibility, dedication, assurance, and guarantee, not a way of feeling.
Romance is not love.
Romance comes from a Greek word that means “erotic,” so we don’t even want to talk about that.
However, we do want you to think differently about love.
If we say, I love you because you are beautiful, that is romance.
But if you are beautiful because I love you, that is real love, it is a value-creating love that inspires you to be the best you can be.
Yet how many of us confuse love (promise, responsibility, dedication, assurance, and guarantee) with romance (emotions, feelings, reactions, passions, excitement, and sensations).
What have we said our whole lives?
“I love you so much; you make me feel differently than I have ever felt before.”
So does a great meal!
If you think you are in love, maybe you just need a long, cold shower and a box of Rolaids!
“I love you” means nothing unless we back it up with righteous actions.
True love is not finding someone who is perfect; it is finding someone who is perfect for you, so that when you are apart, you always say,
“I like me best when I am with you; I want to see you again.”
When you do make a mistake, mess up, fail, or fall, it is usually harder on you than on most others.
The scriptures and the Lord, gives us comfort, in our adversity and our afflictions, for it shall be but a small moment and it shall give us experience, and shall be for our good.
The Lord is clear when he said:
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able;
but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
1 Corinthians 10:13
When you get mad, blame others, and stay mad?
The Lord says, we are not to.
Staying angry and holding a grudge is like you drinking
and expecting the other person to
Jesus Christ has taught that we need to forgive and to forget.
We all make mistakes every once in a while.
We are all human!
In Romans 3:23 we read,
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
When it happens, the subject is, what are we going to do about it?
When life gets tough, even very tough, and life surely will, because if you are not failing a few times, that means you are not pushing yourself hard enough.
What you need is an unshakable commitment to persevere,
to continue, to endure, and to keep trying to live your life righteously as you can.
Your perseverance is patience with a purpose, when you are willingly and proactively take your turn because you know why you should keep going on.
Because your Heavenly Father knows your free agency would get you into trouble when you don’t follow your own conscience, in John 3:16 which states:
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
We know that “by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast”
Because of the infinite Atonement of Jesus Christ, the Lord is not disappointed when you fall or
The Lord is only disappointed when you don’t learn the lesson
from the trial and get back up and go again to your path of
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is continuous and real, which means that pain
from your trial is a signal to grow, not to suffer from your trials.
And once you learn the lesson
from your trial, the pain is teaching you, the pain goes away and
the love from the Lord, Jesus Christ begins to grow again.
In life there are no mistakes, only lessons to learn and
to change back to righteousness and keep the Lords commandments again.
One of the hardest things for you to do is to forgive yourself.
The scriptures are clear that our individual use of time is very significant to God:
Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.
[A man’s] days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;
Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day.
Your days are known, and your years shall not be numbered less; therefore, fear not what man or the world can do you, for God shall be with you forever and ever.
In your darkest moments you knew by the power of the Holy Ghost that you can have strength to overcome any trials.
“I [could] do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me”
Didn’t Jesus teach us to “leave the ninety and nine and go after [the one]”
“Go, and sin no more”
Jesus told Peter:
Behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
We read in James 2:19:
“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.”
You are greater than the devils and Satan himself.
You are a CHILD of God.
