Apologies are part of the Emotional Fitness Exercise called Forgiveness. This Wrong Card makes an important point:
Children often don’t know what we mean when we say “I’m sorry.” That is why when you apologize you always need to include what you are apologizing for. That is also why you need to teach children the same.
For more about apologizing go to Apologies: Healthy for You and Your Child .
Remember what matters; teach your children good manners; apologizing is one and manners matter; so do hugs, practicing kindness, laughing, and playing together.
As always for all your sharing and caring, I thank you.
