The Family Institute’s Couples Tip of the Month discusses how the right words and actions can often exceed — without necessarily precluding — the value of an apology in effectively resolving conflict.
From this month’s tip:
“‘I’m sorry’ doesn’t always end couple conflict in a satisfying way. Often something more is needed, an expression in words or actions that speaks to and ‘corrects’ the underlying experience of one or both partners.”
Read the entire Tip of the Month and learn how to encourage your child to work through things themselves.
