7 HABITS OF HAPPY KIDS

Habit 1 — Be Proactive

You’re in Charge I am a responsible person.  I take initiative.  I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods.  I do not blame others for my wrong actions.  I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.

Habit 2 — Begin with the End in Mind

Have a Plan I plan ahead and set goals.  I do things that have meaning and make a difference.  I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to  my school’s mission and vision. I look for ways to be a good citizen.

Habit 3 — Put First Things First

Work First, Then Play I spend my time on things that are most important.  This means I say no to things I know I should not do.  I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan.  I am disciplined and organized.

Habit 4 — Think Win-Win

Everyone Can Win I balance courage for getting what I want with  consideration for what others want. I make deposits in others’  Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise,  I look for third nkgernatives.

Habit 5 — Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

Listen Before You Talk I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings.  I try to see things from their viewpoints. I listen to others  without interrupting. I am confident in voicing my ideas.  I look people in the eyes when talking.

Habit 6 — Synergize

Together Is Better I value other people’s strengths and learn from them.  I get along well with others, even people who are different than me.  I work well in groups. I seek out other people’s ideas to solve  problems because I know that by teaming with others we can  create better solutions than anyone of us can alone. I am humble.

AND FINALLY

Habit 7 — Sharpen The Saw

Balance Feels Best I take care of my body by eating right, exercising and getting sleep.  I spend time with family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and  lots of places, not just at school. I find meaningful ways to help others.
