Take Control & Responsibility: Children and Young People

It might seem strange to think that taking responsibility would feel good. After all, who wants to do anything more than they have to?! But the reality is that when you are more responsible you have a greater sense of control and feel more powerful.

Sometimes people confuse ‘responsibility’ with ‘blame’ or that it is about making a bad situation your fault. Responsibility is about being proactive and asking yourself “what *can* I do?” It’s got a positive energy that causes you to look forward to the future with curiosity, whereas blame or fault is about looking backwards (into the past) with negativity.

Sometimes you will need to share your responsibilities – especially if you are stuck or there is something you cannot do. In this situation, you are still being responsible by asking for help and then making sure you get what you need to make things better.
