Who am I to think society is even remotely interested in changing, let alone seriously interested? Is it crazy to care about personal responsibility? To believe that if we could teach personal responsibility at a much earlier age and in a more integrated way, teens would move into adulthood much better equipped with the realities of being solely in charge.
Dream wide-open. Picture young children learning mental, physical, spiritual, financial and organizational responsibility at the same time they’re learning to speak, draw, write, spell, add and subtract.
We don’t wait until our children become adults to learn how to add and subtract, yet we somehow think personal responsibility will fall from Heaven when they turn 18 or 21. Really?
If just 3% of the male baby boomers did something great – from mend an important relationship, to help raise money to find a cure for an incurable disease. Or something in between. What a positive impact this would have on younger generations. On their inherited obligation to clean the place up a bit before they leave. Why should they if we don’t? Ya with me?
