Do you find yourself asking your child to say "Sorry" if they have done something wrong, such as hurting another child or break something?
It's easy for a child to parrot "sorry" when you ask them. They learn that if they say it, they are out of trouble. They can go back to playing happily.
But is it meaningful?
Very young children have a limited understand of other people emotions. They don't express empathy in the same as we do. They live in an egocentric way, focusing on their own needs.
They say "sorry" because they are asked to. But this doesn't help the injured child or fix the broken toy. That doesn't help your child to understand what they did wrong.
So what else can you do?
Try the following step by step approach.
I hope this approach will be useful for your family.
