TOTEM CARDS  Strengths to build strong partnerships

This set of 52 family strength cards draw upon attributes that help people to shape healthy relationships. 

People since the beginning of time have looked towards nature and the animal kingdom to acknowledge and honor individual and community strengths. Totems bond people together – families, clans, lineage, tribes, genders and age-groups and create feelings of unity and kinship, by encouraging people to find their inner strengths and those of the people about them.

Shared Journey: Together We Are

  • We understand that parenting partnerships come in many forms however is usually driven by two adults sharing the role of raising children together.

    Children learn to build and sustain their own relationships through their experience of relationships between the most important people in their lives – their parents. Children watch, listen, feel and learn. They take our lead.
    When we acknowledge and combine our parenting strengths we are stronger and more resourceful than either of us could possibly be on our own. We also become aware of gaps or weaknesses and can be mindful of tending to these areas.
