Bulding Strong Families - a free booklet with ideas

Sharing Family Strengths Activity Booklet - Available Free!

This is described as a "16-page booklet is designed to help parents and children identify and nurture their family’s strengths through fun activities and helpful ideas. Using this booklet, families will learn together how to keep their family strong for years to come." (from their website)

It outlines characteristics of strong families, including:
Time together
Cultural traditions
Extended sense of family

But it doesn't stop with the list. For each characteristic, it includes family discussion questions and activities to strengthen your family.

This would be a great handbook to give to families in your youth programs -either via printed handouts or a link in your newsletter.
