Every parent wants to see their son or daughter grow into their own, adult self. How they learn and how they grow is important. The way they choose to deal with the consequences of their choices is also important.
The first thing you want to do when your child makes a mistake is to teach them to find a way to own it.
Make sure they know how to admit errors, and then help them find a way to own them. Your child needs to feel safe to own their own mistake. Teach them how to say, “I’m sorry.” Help them find a way to own it. Teach them how to act out of love.
