Who would you like to hear say, "I'm sorry"? The teacher who manhandled your child with special needs? The IEP team member who never believed in your kid and never missed a chance to tell you so? The celebrity who didn't get the memo that we don't say the R-word anymore? Because they seem to have trouble with this whole apology thing, I've created some helpful templates to encourage those folks to articulate their contrition -- or at least, to give us a laugh imagining what that might sound like. I've got further apologies in mind for that mom at the park who says that thing just loud enough for you to hear it, and the family member who didn't really mean to hurt your feelings when she said you're a terrible parent and your kid's just a brat, honest. If you're still waiting for acknowledgment of wrongness from people in your life, share in the comments. And explain why they've got a lot to apologize for on the Readers Respond pages for the terrible things school personnel and "loved ones" say.
