Liam Says “Sorry”: Repairing an Encounter Gone Sour
Liam has a wonderful big brother called Jamie. Liam and Jamie play lots of fun things together, like computer battle games, sword fighting and pillow boffing. Liam’s favourite game though is wrestling. One day when they were wrestling, Jamie had Liam pinned on the ground. Liam got frustrated and whacked Jamie on the nose…
Making mistakes goes hand in hand with learning. It is a fact of life to which none of us are immune. Yet it is not our mistakes but how we deal with them that truly defines who we are. In Liam Says “Sorry” Liam impulsively whacks his brother on the nose and ruins an otherwise joyful round of wrestling. Wanting desperately to resume the game and win favour with his brother, Liam accepts responsibility for his blunder and apologises. His brother forgives him, and apologises too – and the wrestling at last can be resumed. Good job Liam!
