¿Como expresar este uso del verbo "responder" en ingles? Responder a alguien por algo, como un deber o una obligación. "Mis padres han trabajado duro por mi educación, tengo que responderles con mi dedicación" Gracias de antemano

...I have to make them proud by putting it to good use.

The normal verb in this context is "thank", but "respond" is literal and would make sense. Here is a natural option: "... I should thank them by making good use of it".

The simplest answer may be: ....I have to respond with dedication. I think that a more equal thought would be: ...I have to dedicate myself to using it.
