Another key element in being a healthy relationship role model to kids is to practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is a powerful relationship tool that can promote growth, healing, and connection!
When your children make mistakes, use those moments as a learning opportunity and model forgiveness. Talk to your kids about why their actions were hurtful, and be sure to express that you love and forgive them. This is a wonderful opportunity for your children to learn the healing power of forgiveness for both the person being forgiven, as well as the person doing the forgiving.
