This month we are learning about Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoint. I listen to others without interrupting. I listen with my ears, my eyes, and my heart. I am confident in voicing my ideas.
Expect your child to use words and phrases like “listening with your ears, eyes, and heart,” and “seeking first to understand” in his/her conversations this week. You can encourage your child to be a leader by using some of this language at home.
