“Sorry” is just a worthless word.
Research by Family Graffiti | Published on 22nd May 2017
To a child the word sorry is very rarely a reflection of their emotional regret. It is rarely spoken with real feeling. It is likely to be a mimic word used to excuse themselves, or an expectant word that gets them off the hook. Younger children (3-7years) rarely have true remorse, because it’s a feeling that comes from experiencing remorse and they haven’t learn remorse yet.
