7 Habits For Kids

7 Habits of 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 alternatives.

    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.

    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.
