September 16 2009 Early Childhood Newsletter


The theme of my last four articles is teaching manners and courtesy to young children, with a specific emphasis on forced apologies. These are issues of much debate and discussion among parents and others, and I'd love to hear your thoughts in the Early Childhood Parenting forum.

Here's the latest articles from the Early Childhood Parenting site at BellaOnline.com and links to the related forum discussions:

Making Children Apologize

Alternatives to Forced Apologies
Forcing children to apologize may not always be the best path. Taking responsibility for causing harm and taking action to help may be a more important first step. Here are alternatives to making children apologize.
