In our first Level Up teens Social Emotional Learning class students learned that what we say or do either pushes or brings people closer to us. Here we have students drawing a Giraffe to represent connecting relationships habits and a Jackal to represent disconnecting relationship habits. During practice the guiding question they asked themselves was: Will what I am about to do bring me closer to this person or move us further apart?

Disconnecting Relationship Habits:
1. Nagging
2. Threatening
3. Punishing
4. Criticizing
5. Complaining
6. Blaming
7. Bribing/Rewarding to Control

Connecting Relationship Habits:
1. Supporting
2. Encouraging
3. Trusting
4. Listening
5. Accepting
6. Negotiating Difference
7. Respecting

Homework: At the end of each day, think through the 7 Connecting and 7 Disconnecting Habits and see which habit matches what you did. If you practiced a Connecting Habit, think how it felt and how it was received; and could you do it again. If you practiced a Disconnecting Habit, recall how the other party received it and then think how you could rephrase or reframe what you said. Overtime, practicing the habits will become easier like second nature.
