Parents OnlyIn District 196, Oak Ridge Elementary and Echo Park Elementary are leadership magnet schools using the key principles of Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families. Our goal is to allow kids to discover and develop their own leadership skills and qualities by fostering the development of personal and interpersonal skills. As parents and caregivers, you are the leader in your family. This class demonstrates how and why to have family meetings, the importance of keeping promises, how to balance individual and family needs, and how to move from dependence to interdependence. These principles serve as a guide to solving the problems--large and small, mundane and extraordinary--that confront all families and strong communities.
