Say you were writing to Mr. Santa Claus and his wife Mrs. Claus and you were a very bad boy or girl and wanted to get the best gifts ever for Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever it is you celebrate that you get gifts for. Perhaps your birthdays? Here is what you can do to retrieve yourselves:

How To Form Your Apology

State what your letter is about. …

State your mistake. …

Acknowledge how much you have hurt them. …

Express your gratitude. …

Accept responsibility. …

Offer a solution that will lead to change. …

State a desire to have better interactions in the future.

It’s that simple!
