Families come in all shapes and sizes and it is often easy to forget that strengthening a family is an ongoing task. This pamphlet identifies six important family strengths and suggests activities and tips for building those strengths. Identifying the current strengths of the family is the first step and is followed by selecting one area at a time in which the family wants to be stronger. This strategy will reinforce the positive while building areas that might need more work.
