Why it is worth saying I am #sorry to our #children ? #positiveeducation

I am not perfect. I made mistakes. Sometimes I snap at the kids and say things I really regret.

Instead of drowning in guilt, I chose to say to my children that I was very sorry.

I do not believe children need perfect mothers. I believe they deserve our authenticity. They deserve to know that we can make mistakes so they can do to. Saying to my kids that I regretted my words was like an antidote to perfectionism, for them and for me.
