Forgiveness - How Do We Show We Forgive Someone?
At Oakhill Drive our students understand that relationships sometimes need fixing and can be mended.
When events occur that impact on relationships, we use the 3 step apology
“I’m sorry": is a STATEMENT
“I won’t do it again” is a PROMISE
- “How can I make it up to you?” is a RESPONSIBILITY
We often teach a child to appologise, but teaching a child the act of forgiveness is important too. Choosing to forgive someone not only makes the offender feel better, but makes the forgiver feel happier too. Studies show that the act of forgiving someone can make us happier, healthier, and may help children maintain strong relationships.
