When your child does something 'mean' to another - especially if they're young - what do you do?
It can be so tempting to force them to say 'Sorry", can't it? After all, we want our children to:

- realise the impact of their actions
- feel remorse
- not do the action again
We're also often embarrassed (mortified is probably the better word!) that our child has been awful, and worried that they will turn into a rude, insensitive adult if we don't teach them to be kind from a young age.
But does making them say "sorry" achieve any of that?
