The Question at the Heart of Every Parent-Teen Relationship

THE QUESTION AT THE HEART OF EVERY PARENT-TEEN RELATIONSHIP

Kelly Flanagan

His silence is driving me crazy.

For months, we wonder what sort of role he is playing, and for months, he refuses to even read lines with us. He won’t reveal the show as it is being formed, because he wants us to first experience it when it is finally performed.

When you say “I’m sorry,” and then follow your apology with the word “but,” anything that comes after is an excuse, justification, or a criticism of the hurt party. Even if what you have to say is true, your intention is to give an apology.

By using the word “but” you are giving a false apology. “But” nullifies your apology.
