Responsible parenting.

Halley Suitt talks about the Sacred Trust of parenting. She writes, among other things, "The world is greatly improved by the responsibilities of parenting and by people choosing to become parents."

I find this to be true. I've always advanced from taking responsibility of one kind or another. I think I've made myself a better person because I have a child. This is not to say I consider myself to be the parent I'd want to be, but I wouldn't have bothered to be who I am without my daughter as an incentive.

Of course, taking responsibility is not merely a matter of having responsibility, but you can't have or take a parenting responsibility without the corresponding child!
