1. Demonstrate How to Accept Responsibility

Teach him to use ‘I’ statements. For example, if your child says, “The dog came in and got mud all over the floor” and you know it was your child who let the dog in, you might need to help him out with accepting responsibility for his actions.

This would then change the statement to “I let the dog in and he got mud all over the floor” which should be followed by an apology.

I hope these 7 ways to teach your child to apologize are ones you can use or adjust to help your child. Have you already tried similar methods? What were the results?
