Keeping Your Family Strong
Every family has strengths, and every family faces challenges. When you are under stress—the car breaks down, you or your partner lose a job, your child’s behavior is difficult, or even when the family is experiencing a positive change, such as moving into a new home—sometimes it takes a little extra help to get through the day.

This tip sheet describes six key protective factors and some simple ways you can build these factors in your own family.
