Have you ever lost your shiz with your kids? Stormed alongside them or said something you regret? Maybe you forgot to pick up their posterboard or even behaved in a way you wish you hadn’t. If you can relate, you are not alone.
Our kids need to see us make mistakes because this models how they should react to their own mistakes. Oftentimes that means apologizing, but if you don’t know how to apologize as an adult how can you model it for your kids?
That’s what I’m diving into today. Find out how to apologize when you’ve made a mistake and how my four-step apology will help you model the behavior you want your kids to learn. You and your kids deserve to feel deeply connected, and this episode will help you foster that connection.
