RESPONSIBILITY

Good evening great Momma of Boys! We are going to be looking at the word ‘responsibility’ in the next few days. What does it mean to you? When we say a man is responsible, what exactly does it mean? Responsibility according to my dictionary is the state or act of being responsible (funny definition…lol) while responsible means the following;
1. Liable to be required to give account, as of one’s actions or of the discharge of a duty or trust.
2. Involving personal accountability or ability to act without guidance or superior authority e.g. a responsible position within the firm.
3. Being a source or cause.
4. Able to make moral or rational decisions on one’s own and therefore answerable for one’s behavior.
5. Able to be trusted or depended upon that is, reliable.
6. Based on or characterized by good judgment or sound thinking e.g. responsible journalism.
7. Having the means to pay debts or fulfill obligations.
I know many of us want to raise boys that will grow up to become reliable, accountable, trustworthy and rational men. What practical ways can we achieve this? Kindly share what is working for you or what worked for you or someone you know like your mum, aunt etc.
Let’s talk, Mommas
