Whose Responsibility Is It Anyway?


It amazes me, how often during a week, I hear “It’s not my fault, it’s not my responsibility”.

It seems that in today’s society no one wants to take responsibility for anything. Parents don’t or won’t take the responsibility of how their children turn out. It’s the daycare’s fault, the school’s fault, the college’s fault, the cop’s fault. You get the picture?

As far as children go today, newsflash parents, “It is your fault.” They are your children, not the daycare’s or the schools. It is your responsibility to be sure that they get to school, that they learn in school, and what they do after school. That means paying attention to what your children are doing. Taking an interest in the homework they have, and if they don’t have any, give them some.

Monitoring what kind of music they listen to, what they watch on television, what kind of movies they watch, and the video games they play. Teach them the difference between reality and imaginary ideas, people and things. Television and video games are not baby-sitters, and neither is the school system. Your children are your responsibility. Spend time with them and be aware of what they are doing, instill in them ethics, morals and values so that they can become productive adults.
