Of course I want my child to apologize. However, there needs to be more empathy, and understanding then just mumbling "sorry". I am trying to teach her to acknowledge her mistake and show remorse and learn to think of other ways to handle the problem so that it will not happen again. I feel like this will help her now and later in life when she does make a mistake to try to do right by it and not just brush it off or avoid it with a quick empty sorry.
What do you do when your child does something wrong?
