Talk About It

What does the word responsibility mean ?

  • Being accountable for what you do in both your actions and behavior.
  • Doing the right thing, at the right time, so others can trust and depend on you.

How can you show responsibility ?

  • Complete your homework and chores on time without being reminded.
  • Accept responsibility for your mistakes and learn from them.
  • Make wise choices, such as choosing to eat healthy foods and wearing a helmet while biking.

Think About It

  • Over the past week, how have you seen someone being responsible? What did they do? How could you do something to show Responsibility?
  • You agreed to take care of a neighbor's dog while she is away and now a friend has invited you to a sleepover? What should you do?
  • You broke the wheel off your brother's new skateboard . . . how can you show responsibility?
  • Your mom is not feeling well and could use some help around the house, how should you react?
  • What are some other situations where you can demonstrate responsibility?
