« I'm sorry (the art of apology, part 1) | Main | Christmas ate my brain »

December 08, 2008



Once again, you say it so much more effectively than I can say it myself. I have a similar memory of refusing to say sorry "like I meant it" because I knew I was not wrong (I stood up for one of my younger siblings who was being picked on--and it turned into an all out war among the kids). I got a severe spanking for that infraction, and eventually my mom got her apology, but years later I remember that with a little twinge of hurt.

We are working through "I'm sorry" with our son, and you have outlined the steps that we are trying to take so clearly. It is nice to see it written down in black and white, and helps me to see where we are headed.
