I received a great parenting tip via email on whether or not you should make your kid apologize. It came from National Center for Biblical Parenting. (I like their tips. They are realistic and practical. They also aim at helping the parent help the child develop at the heart level.) Here is the link http://www.biblicalparenting.info. I think it is worth a read. With the kids being off, or soon to be off, school for Christmas Break, you just might get a couple of opportunities to put it into practice.  🙂
