Fingertip An apology is the superglue of life.  It can repair just about anything. 

~Lynn Johnston

 

 

 

An honest, heartfelt, true apology really does make almost everything better again. A parent should never withhold an apology from his or her child when the parent has made a mistake. Whether it's a wrongful accusation of which child made the mess, started a fight or broke something or the parent lost his or her temper and yelled at the child or said something hurtful, there are so many lessons for both parent and child to learn from an apology.

 

It's Friday…. Go eat some chocolate. It's good for you, and you deserve it!

Nota Bene: I hold these truths to be self-evident, that all parents and kids are not created equally, but are wholly individual in personality and style. Regardless of these differences, the basic needs of love, patience and support remain constant. Here are the weekly affirmations, tips and reminders. Unless otherwise noted, these are entirely my opinion. Take them with a grain of salt, or not!
