No, wait. let me rephrase that: Do you find it hard and really difficult to apologise or utter the words, “I’m sorry”, to your child, even though you know you are in the wrong?
If you are in the “Yes” camp, then you might find this month’s feature in World of Moms a pretty interesting read (or not!). If you are in the “No” camp, then are in a great shape – but do read it anyway, just for perspective. Or just to give me a boost because I’ve been featured!
Here’s an excerpt:
2 simple words, so very hard to say. Not saying it can be empowering. Refusing to say it is a power trip that heightens a sense of superiority.
It wasn’t done. There was no reason to. Adults just don’t need to apologise. Period.
And if by the slightest chance they had to, it was mostly delivered without any conviction that they were truly sorry; otherwise, they’ll just have to convince you, that you, the child, were in the wrong. They are older and the wiser ones, pegged by the virtue of how much longer they have experienced life before the child was born. No questions asked, no questioning of authority. It was a code of conduct.
