This month we are learning about Habit 4: Think Win-Win. Thinking Win-Win is the key to working well with others. It is the most effective way of thinking.  Families that learn and practice win-win thinking are happier, experience less conflict, and are better able to meet the family challenges that arise.  Click here for a family activity to apply win-win thinking with your family. 

Want to learn more about Habit 4?  Watch this short video about thinking win-win.
