Should you force apologies?
The problem with forced apologies is that it causes a child to feel shame without teaching them anything about empathy. And it often doesn’t even necessarily soothe the hurt child because they sense the apology is false.

And this includes research-based strategies on how to encourage your toddler to give heartfelt apologies. And lastly, a reminder, toddlers are growing and learning . . . and real change takes time.
