What exactly is personal responsibility? I believe that personal responsibility is to make sure my priorities and assignments will be complete on time and turned in before the due date. Even though I have a son, I may not have much time to do assignments or studying, learning as much as I can is what is important to me so I would be able to find a job for my family.
