Episode 45 – Our Apologies

Why we teach our kids to apologize and why we apologize to them. Also, we announce the winner of our trivia contest and reveal the answer.

Wendy mentions these Bible references if you want to see what they say:

Colossians 1:19-20
2 Corinthians 5:14-21

  1. I love your podcast!! I have now listen to ALL of them. I was very interested on the other side of being foster parentes. I was adopted at 5 months. I am 31 years old now and and my mom and dad and sister are the best people ever. However I got to thinking of how it must have been for my mom and dad when they went through the whole thing of adopting. Both my sister and I were born in korea but for the first 6 months they were foster parents. At that time they found out that I have Cerebral Palsy and they had the ability to send me back. They did not and I’m very greatful that they didn’t, I have learned my thing from them and I still am learning thing from them at 31.
    Now my sister and I are only related to each other by mom and dad. :)

    So hearing about your journey has been eye opening. Keep them comeing. and tell us about all the great mile stones in your life.

  2. First of all, What’s I-Tunes??? =)

    We put a big emphasis on apologizing in our house too. We start as soon as they can talk. For Joel this was at 18 months! He didn’t really know what he was doing, but he got the idea that when he did something wrong that he needed to do something about it and ask for forgiveness.

    I loved your story about Linda, Wendy. I’ve had moments like that as well. But what a great example you set by asking for forgiveness. =)

  3. Okay, it may be a few years later but I went ahead and put a review on iTunes for you with some good trigger words (all completely heartfelt).
    I am also big on apologies. Kids need to know that we are not perfect and our apologies to them show them how to be a better person as well. They also learn that others make mistakes and also how to forgive.
