What to Do When Your Child Won’t Say “I’m Sorry”

The following post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure statement.

Hey, homeschoolers!

If you have more than one child or if your child has had conflict with another, you know this situation. Your child has said or done something to hurt someone. Your natural inclination is to tell the child to apologize. But what if she won’t? Or what if he does, and everyone knows it’s not genuine? What should you do?

That’s what I asked my guest, Lynna Sutherland. You will love what she has to say. I know I did.
