Abstract

One of the core developmental tasks in the adolescents' stage is building the sense of responsibility. This study examined the relationship of sibling position and family communication to the sense of responsibility among 903 Malaysian adolescents, using The Malaysian Adolescents' Responsibility Inventory, Parent-Adolescent Communication Inventory and interview protocol. Sense of responsibility was found to be related to Family communication but not to sibling position. The interview revealed that middle born children can be responsible when they are given responsibilities. This study suggests adults' participation in encouraging young people to inculcate sense of responsibility.
