Love this idea! Consequences That Actually Work! "Forced apologies don’t teach true remorse and reconciliation... Parents can set kids up for sincere reconciliation. ...Restitution consequences encourage personal responsibility and usually end with one child feeling cared for and the other feeling caring."
