Under the common law (the legal rules we inherited from England and still apply in some form), parents were generally not held responsible, on the basis of their parenthood alone, for their children’s acts. Courts did not hold parents potentially liable to every possible victim of their minor children’s careless acts; and even when the child acted deliberately, the law required something more, such as proof that the parent knew of the child’s propensity to so act, and failed to do anything about it. Arguably, this approach focuses on protecting the parent, not the victim.
Should parents be held responsible for property or personal damage caused by their minor children? Are there situations when they should even be held criminally liable? These questions arise in a variety of situations, ranging from schoolyard tussles that result in scrapes or broken bones, to shoplifting, to horrific acts of mass murder (Columbine). The legal answers are not clear, and analyzing any particular situation requires studying how legislators have approached the issues in your state, and how judges have applied those laws. Even then, in this area, reasonable minds can differ quite a bit.

Tell them that responsibility isn't just doing chores, it's following through on commitments, answering for their own actions, being reliable and trustworthy, using good judgment, taking care of their own affairs, and not procrastinating.
Apparently was working behind the scenes to undermine gay rights in America. How shameful and pathetic of him. I have been so impressed with his approach to climate and his call to end the death penalty in the US. But for him to make insidious comments about how the "traditional family" is under threat (presumably from gay marriage) and then to secretly meet that poor misguided cretin Kim Davis... I am glad that he is mobilizing his flock to care about nature, but i would still prefer that they would all just evacuate to their heaven now and leave the rest of humanity and nature in peace here on earth. Pope Francis seems still to be causing harm and burning witches in the name of Christ, just like his forefathers.
Responsibility is something most people are taught from an early age. As you get older you take what you learn and use it to your advantage to help you sustain a healthy way of living. This includes taking care of yourself from the inside out while managing emotions and other needs. Sometimes a consequence suffered from a previous event can make it more difficult for an individual to assume personal responsibility on a social scale. Keeping a sound mind and treating others with respect are things you continue to do throughout your life.
This delightful video series teaches children valuable lessons that contribute to self-discipline, good decision-making, high self-esteem, a sense of responsibility, and the ability to get along with others.
What if … you are at a big, festive holiday party and the host asks if your 12-year-old son can have a little wine with dinner too, since it’s a special occasion? He’s the youngest kid there by a several years and all of the others are being allowed to imbibe. What is the responsible thing to do?
Personal responsibility includes being responsible for your own actions and well-being. In relation to social roles each person has their own way of doing things while living their own life. The concept is similar for businesses and organizations that work to provide opportunities for others. They have a responsibility in providing products, goods, and services that are fair while serving a purpose. In either scenario, consequences are suffered when failing to do what is right. In many cases, when you neglect to be responsible, others may be affected in ways you may not have anticipated.
Well, consider for a moment — is it your job as parent to do your child’s work for him in order to keep moving things along or is it your job to help him learn about planning, making choices, managing his time and facing consequences even when they hurt? Once you make that determination you can figure out what kind of a response would be appropriate (and responsible), given your role.
I am glad the Vatican has chosen to clarify the situation with Kim Davis, and I want to believe that Pope Francis doesn't support her position. Given his long record of opposing gay marriage, I doubt that his view of it strays far from hers. Gay and transgendered people have been brutalized by the Catholic church for so many years, and I am weary and defensive. The institution that he represents is steeped in violent homophobia and misogyny. I appreciate Pope Francis' courageous statements about climate change. I believe that the subjugation of women and the earth is one and the same; the same element that persecutes gay people and enslaves women is the one that perpetuates genocide against indigenous people and rapes the earth for short-sighted gain. So to me, the protection of nature and the civil rights of women, gay people and transgendered people are parallel and interdependent. And next week, the safety and well-being of so many gay and trans kids and adults around the world will be determined by the message that the pope has projected. -ANOHNI

URGENT APPEAL FROM ANTONY
A while ago i spent several weeks in the Western desert of Australia working on a project with elders from the aboriginal Martu community in Parnngurr. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. The wisdom and radiance of these people was humbling. Their well-being and their knowledge of their homeland is one of Australia's most precious living assets.
Parnngurr is located near a site that the Canadian multinational company Cameco and Japanese company Mitsubishi wishes to exploit for uranium. This will have devastating consequences on the region. I have personally seen other mines in the area. They are horrific. The Martu have always known of the uranium at Kintyre; they have spoken of it for generations in their storytelling as something dangerous that should be left undisturbed. Please watch this
