Help Your Children Build Great Habits – Habit 1. Be Proactive

Sean Covey teaches us that our habits make or break our lives.

 It is essential that we teach our children good habits if we want them to be happy and productive.

He focuses on seven essential habits and today we will look at Habit No. 1   BE PROACTIVE.

This means we need to teach our children to take responsibility for their lives and not place blame. Our children need to know that they choose what they do, how they feel and how they react and that they must not allow other people or things to control them.

For example, we need to help our children understand that if someone says something mean to them they can let it ruin their day, or they can shake it off and think ‘oh well’ and move on. Every child has immense power and needs to know that the only way they lose it is by playing the victim.
