How do I teach my kids to be responsible

Be honest

There is an old saying that honesty is the best policy. This is especially true when raising children. If you lie to your children, they'll know, and you send them the message that it's okay to lie. If you want to maintain respect, both for and from your children, you must avoid lying at all costs. Even "little white lies" should be avoided. There are no degrees of lies: a lie is a lie, no matter how small it is.
