Suggestions for teaching Habit 4 in your home throughout the week (Focus on the pillar “Heart”):

  • Emotional Bank Account activities
  • Discuss and analyze how the characters you scholar is reading about are (or are not) thinking win-win.
  • Discuss and analyze your scholar’s morning quotes about thinking win-win https://www.brainyquote.com/topics/win-win
  • Discuss or write about the practices of habit 4:
    • Build Emotional Bank Account with others
    • Have an Abundance Mentality
    • Balance courage and consideration
    • Consider other people’s wins as well as your own
    • Create win-win agreements
