I am constantly talking to my kids about taking care of their responsibilities. Sometimes, in the heat of an emotional lecturing, I shorten it to "meet your responsibilites," in the sense that one can "meet an obligation".
There has to be a better, shorter way to say the same thing. Some rejects:
- Meet your obligation - Eh, an obligation is not a responsibility, really.
- Do your duty - Not good for talking to kids.
- 'Tend ur rez' - No matter how many "z's" you use, dad, you will never be cool.
Can anyone suggest or invent a better way of hitting this bullet point for the attention-span challenged?
