Responsibility (An Essential Life Skill)
When you think of the word “responsibility”, what comes to mind? Getting your school assignments done on time? Helping your family with the daily chores? Watching out for your little brother or sister? Responsibility definitely means all those things, but it means something more too.  Responsibility is also about looking inside yourself and doing all you can to be the best person possible. And trying to see what you can do to help others.  In short, when you practice responsibility, you’re on your way to making your life the very best it can be!
Here are some fantastic quotes about responsibility for you and the tremendous impact it can have!

Responsibility Song (Children, you must learn this, by-heart)
I am responsible, I am reliable
I always follow through, with what I say I’m gonna do
I am dependable, I hold myself accountable
I take responsibility, and do what needs to be done
I show self-control, use good judgment
I think about the consequences of my actions
Responsibility, it is my duty
Fulfilling all of my moral obligations
If mess up I will always fess up
I will keep my head up, I’m never gonna give up
It is my duty and responsibility to follow through
You can count on me to do what I say that I’m gonna do
I never make excuses, when everything goes wrong
I take responsibility and don’t blame anyone
I put the blame on me, stand up and take the lead
Come now and follow me, let’s make this a priority
I show self-control, use good judgment
I think about the consequences of my actions
Responsibility, it is my duty
Fulfilling all of my moral obligations
