Nice article:

http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Responsibility+Vs.+Fault-a01073854594

To paraphrase, let's say Reuven's father was overly critical, and as a result he's overly critical of his own spouse and children. It's not his fault because this is the only way he knows how to act as a father. However, it is now his responsibility. As an adult, he can take steps, including getting appropriate help, to acquire better parenting/relationship skills. He is no longer a powerless observer. He can take charge of his life and implement whatever changes are necessary to become the kind of person he wants to be. I find that this really speaks to me.
