We’ve all been there. You yelled at your child and now you and your child are both left feeling not so great. So what do you do next? You might worry that apologizing or admitting you made a mistake will make you look weak, that your child will think it’s ok to misbehave, that you won’t be seen as the strong parent figure. But in fact, it’s the opposite. Our children look to us to know how to behave, so it’s important to treat them with respect and teach them what it looks like to repair a mistake.
