In a message dated 96-12-01 08:32:00 EST, Alan writes about defining
responsibility as:

<< taking accountability for one's actions and living
in such a way as to embody one's values>>

I think this is a wonderful definition. He further writes:

<< while I do believe we can help people learn more about and clarify their
own values, it would be presumptuous for me or anyone to "teach" someone else
how to be responsible >> and an another post talks of kids

<< "developing their sense of responsibility" rather than being "taught
responsibility".
The difference, for me, lies in who is in control of the process.>>

Bravo.
