One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa explore apologies. Is saying “I’m sorry” enough or is it more important for kids to learn from their mistakes and accept responsibility for hurting someone else? Can apologizing also be used as an excuse for not wanting to try harder? How do we know if we are setting a good example? Plus Biz is worried, Theresa solves a problem and we welcome back Alli Harper, founder of OurShelves.
