A young family member of mine (you know who you are!) took some time as a child to learn how to apologise, and to sound like she meant it! In the overwhelming emotion of the moment sometimes the recipient of the apology remained unconvinced. But she won her sisters around by showing that she understood why the other felt wounded, and taking time to repair the relationship. Sometimes this took a lot of work: more apologies, more re-telling and reviews of what happened, and more repair efforts than she initially expected.
