But we keep seeing people NOT beng responsible, or taking responsibility for their actions that we feel like it is worth discussing again. Some topics just need reemphasizing. We discuss the importance of being accountable, that consequences isn't necessarily a bad word, and how being responsible can increase your trust in yourself and the level of trust that others have for you. What are some ways that you show responsibility as a teen? Let us know in the comments. PS We are now on the Android podcasting app called Stitcher.
