Sucky Apologies


We introduce our children to the premise of apology even before they can talk. As they grow older, we teach them empathy & the concept of regret. We also teach them how to make a sincere apology when they have hurt or wronged someone, & why making an apology is so important...
Important for both the offender & the victim.

Why is it, then, that so many people just can not suck it up and behave like decent human beings? 

And, why is it that so many of these douche-bag folk are celebrities, psuedo-celebrities, politicians, or some other form of jerk that has either been put up on a pedestal, or certainly thinks he/she deserves to be up on one? 

I am stumped. 
Your thoughts?

  1. I think no one takes any responsibility for their actions these days. They were either taught no manners or brought up by wolves. Look around this world and you will see all the entitled little snowflakes who are just so special and think they can do anything they want with no consequences. Look who these morons put in office as a role model and that should give you a clue to how much people just don't care about morals or people who lie through their teeth every time they open their mouths. That's the state of things nowadays and I don't think its going to get better anytime soon.

  2. I can remember teaching my children from a young age to apologize. We also apologized to them (need to walk the walk). Others disagreed with me and said that it 'upset her child to say sorry'. What can I say? I completely disagreed and am happy with the decisions we made in raising our children.

    1. Sounds like you took your parental responsibilities seriously, while others clearly do not... Which, imho, did/does those poor children no favours growing up or later, as grown ups.
      How can a child mature into a decent human being with a solid moral compass if the parents do not instill values because "it's too hard/they don't like it"?
