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.

Being proactive says "I'm in charge of my own life and whether I am happy or sad. I can choose how I react to other people or situations."  

Parent tips:  You can guide your children to think about choices and how different choices have different results before they decide what to do. Discussions can focus on taking care of themselves, taking care of their things, reacting or not reacting to others' behavior, planning ahead and thinking about what the right thing to do is. Think of ways to Be Proactive at home.

Role play Activity: Part of being proactive is to stop and think before you act. Your goal is to encourage your child to stop and think before reacting.   (In this role play, you should play the part of your child and your child should play the part of you.) Tell your child that you are "sooooooo bored" and there is nothing fun to do.  Complain that no one wants to play and that he or she (as the parent) needs to amuse you.

PS 34 Mission Statement

At PS 34 we are committed to the academic success of every child. The school’s mission is to teach a rigorous academic curriculum, complimented by a wide range of enrichment opportunities, inclusive of the arts, in a supportive and safe environment.  Our students are challenged to become lifelong learners who are well prepared for the demands of the 21st century.  We believe the high expectations of today will nurture successful and productive citizens of tomorrow.  As a community of professional learners we empower our students to grow academically by teaching them critical and analytical thinking skills in full alignment with state and national standards. Supported by and in collaboration with families and community members, we expect students to aim high by addressing the individual needs of diverse learners and by strengthening the development of a well-rounded child who is fully prepared for their educational complexities beyond elementary school.
