CHOOSE RESPONSIBILITY

Texting is as natural as breathing to kids today. So how do we get them to “hold their breath” when they’re driving? Discuss the virtue of responsibility with them, and ask them to join the It Can Wait community by taking the pledge to stop texting and driving.

WHAT IS RESPONSIBILITY?

Being responsible means that other people can depend on you. You are willing to be accountable for your actions. When you are responsible, you keep your agreements. Responsibility is a sign of growing up.

WHY PRACTICE IT?

When you take responsibility for your own actions, other people can trust you. When you are not responsible, and you break your promises, you let people down.

HOW DO YOU PRACTICE IT?

When you agree to do something, even something as simple as doing the dishes, or something more serious, like babysitting a young child or driving a group of friends to the mall, you take it as your responsibility to do it with excellence. When you make a mistake, you don’t get defensive. You learn from it and you fix it. You choose to be responsible for your actions.
