7 Habits Family Training 

We are excited to offer “The 7 Habits of Successful Families” Training to Waukee Elementary Parents this school year for the first time ever at Waukee Elementary.

We would love to involve as many parents as possible. Information for session dates/times and cost of materials can be found on the following form: https://goo.gl/forms/SlnYD9581pq4T45i2. Please use this Invitation Form to respond by the end of the day on Thursday, December 20th if you are planning to participate.

The 7 Habits of Successful Families is an engaging, family-strengthening program based on Stephen R. Covey’s No. 1 bestsellers The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families. Program participants: 1) apply an “Inside-Out Approach” to problem solving and goal creation; 2) resolve differences in marriage and family relationships by creatively cooperating together; 3) establish a better work/life balance; 4) become more effective in raising emotionally healthy and empowered children; 5) employ the skills of Empathic Listening and synergy; and 6) learn to discipline and motivate children effectively.
