Responsibility: Teaching Accountability for Their Actions

A person of character is responsible, diligent and accountable. A person of character considers the consequences of his or her actions before acting. A child is not born with these character traits; they are learned through experiences from birth. These factors play a fundamental role in children's growth and development.

Consider the following examples of "do's and don'ts."


  • What you're supposed to do.
  • Persevere.
  • Pursue excellence. Do your best in everything you do.
  • Show self-control and self-discipline.
  • Think before you act.


  • Blame others for your mistakes.
  • Give up easily.
  • Let others down who are counting on you.
