Can you be more specific? I think there are varying degrees of responsibility, and kids can be responsible at different ages. My 8 yr old is held responsible if he forgets his homework or loses his behavior calendar. But he would not be responsible if he is late for school b/c I drive him. My 5 yr old is not held to the same level of responsibility as my 8 yr old. But, if you're talking about something like a teenager drinking, or an adult murdering, that's a completely different thing. Specifics would make it easier to answer this question.
