Responsibility

Responsibility can have many meanings. The most important meaning of Responsibility is doing what you’re supposed to do. In fact, entrepreneur John D. Rockefeller once said that every right "implies a responsibility, every opportunity an obligation, every possession a duty." Responsibility can especially mean planning ahead - whether it be for big school projects and doing your very best on schoolwork, tests, or quizzes. Another important meaning for Responsibility is holding yourself accountable for your own words and actions. 

 

When your child learns the values of responsibility, they can learn to set a good example for their peers. The book Nehemiah's Playroom, a part of The Phoenix children's book series with the subject character Nehemiah’s messy playroom, teaches the example of the responsibility of doing what you are supposed to do.
