Your child can show responsibility by:

  • taking care of himself or herself and others in the family
  • getting up on time, getting ready for school, and having breakfast
  • completing homework and keeping his or her school work organized
  • helping with household chores without being asked
  • keeping promises

Encouraging Responsibility in Your Child:

  • Remind your child about being responsible for his or her school work by checking his or her agenda and/or school work every day.
  • Remember to be patient as your child learns to become responsible.
  • Encourage and praise your child when he or she is responsible.
  • Share an example of a situation in which someone you know behaved responsibly.
