Product Description
Picking up the habit of saying, “I’m sorry” and overusing it can be extremely annoying to people. As kids get older, this starts to sound insincere. Often it can send the wrong message to someone, making them think the person is weak and insecure. Some professionals feel that saying, “I’m sorry” too much sends ourselves the message that our self-worth and self-esteem are low. Regardless, ”I’m sorry” is often used in the wrong contexts, more as a politeness strategy rather than an apology strategy. This should be corrected for students with more appropriate language. This social story does just that. It explains to students that at school, it is expected to make mistakes, that’s how we learn. When a teacher corrects a student, a more appropriate response would be, “Thanks for letting me know” or “Thanks for the reminder”. Additionally
in this story students are taught when it is appropriate to use, “I’m sorry”, such as when you do something wrong to someone. Finally there are additional resources suggested to reinforce this lesson.
