Is It Helpful Making Your Child Say “Sorry”?

Is It Helpful Making Your Child Say “Sorry”?

When your child does something ‘mean’ to another – especially if they’re young – what do you do?

It can be so tempting to force them to say ‘Sorry”, can’t it?  After all, we want our children to

– realise the impact of their actions
– feel remorse
– not do the action again

We’re also often embarrassed (mortified is probably the better word!) that our child has been awful, and worried that they will turn into a rude, insensitive adult if we don’t teach them to be kind from a young age.

But does making them say “sorry” achieve any of that?

And if it doesn’t, what can we do instead?
