A Journey from Rain to Drain Lesson 1-How to Be a Responsible Person PP1
1. When you agree to do something, do it! If you let people down, they’ll stop believing you. When you follow through on your commitments, people take you seriously.
2. Answer for your own actions. Don’t make excuses or blame others for what you do.
3. Take care of your own matters. Don’t rely on adults to remind you when you’re supposed to be somewhere or what you’re supposed to bring. You take the responsibility.
4. Be trustworthy. If someone trusts you to borrow or take care of something, take care of it. If somebody tells you something in confidence, keep it to yourself. It’s important for people to know they can count on you.
5. Always use your head. Think things through and use good judgment. When you use your head you make better choices. That shows your parents and teachers they can trust you.
6. Don’t put things off. When you have a job to do, do it!

TAKE YOUR TIME - Don’t get in a hurry. Take as much time as you need to see everything. LOOK AT THE AREA FROM DIFFERENT VIEWS - Move around until you have made all of your observations.
MAKE NOTE OF EVERYTHING YOU THINK “MIGHT” BE AN ISSUE -If you see something that just doesn’t look right, go ahead and make note of it. ALWAYS THINK OF SAFETY - There may be areas that your investigation leads you that may not be safe such as storm drains, overgrown creeks or hazardous chemical buildings.
