We are learning about Habit 1: Be Proactive.

To Be Proactive means to take responsibility for your choices and behaviors. Habit 1: Be Proactive is the key to all of the other habits; that's why it comes first. Be Proactive says, "I am the leader of my own life. I am the leader of whether I'm happy or sad. I am the leader of how I react to other people or situations."

Talk to your child about being the leader of taking care of himself/herself, taking care of his/her things, reacting or not reacting to other people's comments, and planning ahead.

Suggested titles for young children that reinforce Habit 1:

* King Bidgood's in the Bathtub by Audrey Wood

* The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper

Expect your child to use words and phrases like choices, responsibility, "Be Proactive,” and "stop and think” in his/her conversations this week. You can encourage your child by using some of this language at home. You may have an opportunity to share your feelings with your child about Be Proactive.

Check out the "Parent's Place” at www.TheLeaderinMe.org for fun ways to bring the habits home.
