Behoove is a verb that means to make necessary or proper because of a duty.

Coming from Old English our word of the day is often used in a formal context. For example: Because of the immense responsibility involved with raising a child, it behooves a parent to step in when the child begins to develop unhealthy eating habits. This duty comes with everyone who chooses to have kids.
