Teach Teens the Power of an Apology
“I’m sorry” may seem like two little words, but they are actually a big signal that your teen is maturing. Acknowledging mistakes and apologizing for them means your teen can reflect on their own actions and understand the ways they impact the world around them. Make sure you acknowledge that fact, even if you’re in the throes of dealing with that mistake. Help your teen take their apology a step further by putting their words into action. Ask them what they’ll do differently next time and how you can support them to reach that new goal.
