I’ve been thinking about this today, as I hear other moms discipline their kids (and me too!) say “that’s not nice, tell her you’re sorry!”
What does saying sorry even mean?
Do you (I don’t) think toddlers, especially young ones, understand what they are saying and what is meant when they say “ I’m sorry I threw that ball at your face?”
I’m trying not to do the whole “say you are sorry” thing right now, because I’m pretty sure Lucas has no idea who I am or what planet I’m from when I say that. But, I find myself saying it anyways, as if it’s a habit or a “natural” thing to do when disciplining, you know?
What are your thoughts?
