Responsibility project by Liberty Mutual

My daughter is learning about person responsibilty at school this year and this resource was given to me to evaluate to see how i liked it. it is a very good resource to help teach your kids responsibility in a meaningful way. I looked it over and then found there were things for kiddos as young as my son who is almost 4 years old. there are short films to look at, blogs, guides for discussion adn tons of resources to help you teach responsibilty to your kids. check it out at

here are some of the short films on the site that we loved and enojoyed the most:
The Lighthouse: In this animated short, a community comes together to help an elderly lighthouse keeper when he accidentally shatters the beacon as a ship approaches land. This film is appropriate for kids as young as age 4.

The New Boy: A tough move to a new country gets a little easier when boys who start out as enemies come together over a shared moment of laughter. Elementary-aged kids will especially appreciate this short film.

Father's Day: Despite past differences, a mother reconnects with her estranged father for the sake of her daughter. Directed toward an older audience, this film is best for middle school students.

for more information check out the paragraph pasted from
Liberty Mutual has put together a resource that can help parents talk with their kids about personal responsibility in a meaningful way. You may remember Liberty Mutual's recent commercials based on the concept of "pay-it-forward" - someone who sees another person participating in an act of kindness and is inspired to do the same for a stranger. Liberty Mutual received an overwhelming reaction from viewers moved by this simple idea, and in response created an entire website devoted to the idea of defining and discussing this elusive but important quality. The site includes resources such as short films, discussion guides, and a blog to help families teach and talk about personal responsibility.
