How to create positive habits to
get your kids going for the day
“We are what we Repeatedly Do. Success is not an action but a Habit”
Creating Positive Habits are not made overnight. Consistency is key to
form and maintain good, healthy, and positive habits. Below are a few
examples of good habits and how you can implement them in your child
1. Start Early – Like REALLY early! A successful day starts with
how you end your previous day.
a. Having a Healthy Dinner
b. Having their Bag and Clothes Ready for the Morning
c. Getting to Bed Early
2. Getting Started – Starting the Day on a Positive Note Will Set the
Tone for the Rest of the Day.
a. Eating a Healthy Breakfast
b. Talking about How They’re Going to Have a Good Day at
School (sending positive thoughts)
3. Encourage Good Behavior – Give Some Examples of When and
How to Show Good Behavior (Both at and outside of school)
a. Using Their Manners
b. Helping Others
c. Being Honest
4. Praise Positive Efforts – When Talking about Their Day Praise
Them on Even the Smallest Thing that They are Showing an
Interest in or Positive Event in Their Day.
5. Rewards – Rewards don’t have to be extra time on video games
or candy. Intangible rewards are just as effective to young minds
such as hugs, spending time to play with them. (This will help
build a stronger bond between you and your child!)
6. Be the Example – Sending mixed signals such as “Do as I say not
as I do” are confusing and undermine all of your efforts to help
create positive habits in your child. When your child sees that
you’re just as committed to these new habits they will but in
more effort and even be more excited and involved in changing
their habits to more positive ones :-)
