Being Responsible

Being responsible means you do what you say you will do. If you say you’ll take the trash out once a week, you’ll do that. If you say you’ll feed your dog, you’ll do that. What happens if you get sick and can’t feed your dog? Can you skip it? No, because your dog depends on you. Maybe you ask your brother to do it for you but you have to make sure the dog gets fed, no matter what. When you go camping you are responsible for cleaning up after yourself, no matter what. Sometimes being responsible sounds like a lot of work and not much fun. But remember, being responsible means being dependable. If you are dependable, you get to do more things like going on a fun campout. So boys, be dependable and be responsible and get to do more things. That’s what growing up means.
