7 habits – be proactive

Remember, Be Proactive means that you take control of your life and how you act. You don’t wait for other people to do things for you. This is perfect at the moment for you where you have to be proactive at home! Remember the circle of control? Draw a circle and draw a smaller circle inside that circle. Inside the first smaller circle, write down all the things you can control.

On the outside of the smaller circle, write down all the things you can’t control. Look at this example


Circle of Control - to discuss things a child can and can't control in the  hospital setting … | Elementary counseling, Social emotional learning,  School social work
