I'm looking for some books about strengthening family bonds--like lots of ideas for family rituals.  I've seen short articles here and there about sensory connections, or inducing bonding with foster children, or older adopted children, overcoming RAD, stuff like that.  Any good books?

I don't know if this is up your alley or not, but I really like Amanda Soule's books - The Creative Family and The Rhythm of Family.  They have some good ideas on things like that.

i find this book a goldmine. 

 

not really family ritual though. its more about activity. i found this to be and still be VERY helpful to dd who loves the activities and does not have SPD.

family rituals have all come from reading posts here, IRL friends and my ideas put together.
