What is the short term sorry???

Why it is critical with children??

It is a continuous apologising from child about bad things, talks and behaviours that are unacceptable from parents or someone else.  
 
Parents think it reflects a good way they are adopting in bringing up their children but it's not.
 
Pushing child to continuously apologising and saying sorry without improving the behaviour it self, will results in so many repeated scenarios, and:
 
-Will teach him submission.
-He will use it always as a fast way to end stories and problems.
-It will not teach him the good behaviour 
 
Unfortunately this way adopted somehow in mena regions and cultures. Thinking that it's the right way of respecting others specially with older ones forcing child to say sorry which means he respects this old man.
 
What an encouraging way to respect others for their ages and cultures instead of respecting the human beings generally. 
 
And what's worse is when this old man/woman say bad words and when the child imitates and repeats  they ask him to be more respectful in selecting his language. 
 
That's why it's a short term sorry  because it's repeated again and again without improving the behaviour it self, without ending stories. 
 
Remember  to change your selves and attitudes before looking at Little Angles...Remember to set a good example in behaving, and apologising when apologising means something. Remember to apologise for the behaviour not for the person, what ever his background and age.
 
That way saying sorry will be a long term one, beside teaching  him the good behaviours that shift the bad ones.
