I was raised by parents who didn't accept the "blame game" or "denial" as an excuse for my own wrong doing. I was raised to take responsibilty for my action, take the consequence and kearn from it.
I raised my own children the same. Now they are raising their own the same way they were brought up. As I told my children when they were young, "For every action there is a consequence. You decide whether the consequence is good or bad by your actions".
