How to Balance Individual and Family Needs

No family is free from challenges. But a strong family embodies a problem-solving culture in which parents and children act interdependently, appropriately, and positively. It is a culture that enables all family members to experience the joy, satisfaction, and integrity of living their principles day by day.

In his first major work since the #1 bestselling The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen R. Covey presents a practical and philosophical guide to solving the problems – large and small, mundane and extraordinary – that confront all families at one time or another.

In The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families, Covey demonstrates in how the basic principles of the original book are the key to building strong families and strong communities.

By offering revealing anecdotes about ordinary people as well as suggestions about changing everyday behavior, this book shows 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.
