It’s not if you mess up as a parent, it’s when. What matters most is making the relationship right again. How we respond to our children makes all the difference. Whether we raise our voices, ignore our children, or dismiss their feelings, we must own our mistakes, apologize, and seek forgiveness from our children.
To make it a little easier, we’ve created this printable tool to make things right. Give these “tickets” to your kids when you need to apologize. You’ll be modeling how to make amends.
Before long, your kiddos will be filling out these tickets for themselves.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Printed handout
2. Forgiving spirit
3. Pencil or pen
4. Thoughtful written apology
