You Made Me Think

I heard the podcast the other day and something you said really struck a chord. You shared that you apologized to your son about yelling at him when he was 8 and why.

It got me reflecting on some occasions where I yelled at my son. I too was stressed out and overwhelmed. I apologized to him. I wanted to make sure he wasn't carrying anything around from the past that I might have caused. He said that his childhood was good and he wasn't affected by my yelling at that time. He appreciated it.

Thank you for making me stop and think.
