Family Resources
Bright Futures for Families helps parents make decisions for their children by providing parents with the resources they need to become confident, well informed, active partners in their children's health and development. The resources provide insight and guidance as parents plan health visits and discussions with the many people who assist in the care for their children.


School and Community Resources
Bright Futures family materials are appropriate for use in a wide variety of settings by school and community-based program staff (e.g., teachers, school counselors,
school nurses, after-school-program staff, coaches, social workers, law enforcement, recreation, food-and-nutrition-program staff, clergy, parent-education professionals) with health related content, resources, and tools to support community policy, family interaction, education, and training activities.
