Strengthening Families through the Five Protective Factors

Evidence supports that these Five Protective Factors are present in strong families:

  • Relationships
    Developing a bond of strong, warm feelings with my child and forming a healthy bond and attachment.
     
  • Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development
    Understanding how children grow and develop and applying effective, nonviolent discipline techniques appropriate to my child’s age and level of development.  
     
  • Parental Resilience
    Gaining an awareness of my own challenges in parenting and learning ways to handle everyday stressors and recover from an occasional crisis.
     
  • Social Connections
    Feeling encouraged and supported in facing the daily challenges of raising a family.
     
  • Concrete Supports
    Learning about community resources such as child care, health care, education, counseling, housing, or food helps me ensure the health and well-being of my child. Being a parent is one of the most difficult jobs there is, but raising healthy, well-functioning children is one of the greatest contributions a parent can make to society. Parenting is a learned process that results from a combination of having a positive role model for parenting, strong support in the learning process, and access to accurate, helpful information.
