Personal Responsibility is something you learn and develop through life, if you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to learn.

Little kids arenít capable of it, though they can learn if they are taught and fortunate to be given problems and responsibilities in line with their maturity and abilities so that they can fail and succeed and learn or grow.

You seem to think that personal responsibility is about judging other people. That is EXACTLY wrong. It is about judging yourself.


I would judge myself very poorly indeed if I were to look down on kids because they had bad parents.
