Whether it's a beaver accidentally chopping down an owl’s tree, a giraffe borrowing a worm’s socks without permission, or a cat dropping their kite in a dog’s yard, everyone needs to know how to apologize. Apologizing can be hard. Sometimes what we did was an accident. Sometimes the person we hurt is scary or mean. Sometimes they owe us an apology too. Even so, any time we hurt someone, we need to say we're sorry. Apologies can be simple or long, in person or on a note. Then you can try to fix the mistake or at least do your best to make sure it doesn't happen again. So long as you don't make excuses and you are sincere, your apology will make you feel better and, more importantly, make the person you hurt feel better.
