Habit 1 Be Proactive- You are in charge of yourself.

Here is a proactive activity you can do together.

Pause, Think, and Choose

Ask family members to think of a situation where they usually respond reactively. Have each family member write down the answers to the following questions:

What is the situation?

What is something you can do to take a PAUSE in this specific situation?

THINK, what are some choices you could make in this situation?

What will be the consequence of each choice?

What will you CHOOSE to do to be proactive in this situation?

Invite family members to take a turn to be a performer and act out their situation. Cheer for the proactive choices!
