Teaching Kids to Apologize

No items found.

One of the most important skills we give our children is the ability to apologize and repair in a relationship when something they have done (or not done) effects someone else.

Like most other things, they learn this primarily by watching what you model.

Kids need to see adults apologize and take ownership of the impact of their actions with these two important elements:

1. The absence of shame. If we enter shame when we apologize we take away the focus on the other person's pain or upset.

2. The presence of true understanding of what the other person felt or experienced as a result of our actions or inactions.

Good luck out there parents! If you're anything like me there are MANY opportunities every day to model apologizing ..šŸ˜˜
