Apologizing , a key to solve a problem!

 Newton says: "Without ever waiting for Carl’s permission, I raced over, jumped on Jabber’s chest, and started licking his face. “I’m so sorry,” I whined again and again."
 The Not Perfect Hat (chapter 9) by Jena Ball.

  • Newton felt bad about what happened to Jabber and apologized. 

Have you ever needed to apologize ? How did you feel about it?

" Once I needed to apologize to my mum because she wanted me to take out the leaves in the pool, but there were a lot of leaves, so I didn't want to do it, but my mum got angry. So, I felt sad about it because she ended up doing two things at the same time. I felt guilty. But when I offered her my help she told me that she was not going to take me to a birthday party I had that day. Finally, I started to apologize again  because I really felt sad about that. Finally she understood me. I helped her  to take out the leaves and I went to the party. I learnt that helping is necessary because in the end it has consequences." By Fabricio

"It was in the beach. I was playing  volleyball with my family when a boy started walking in the middle of the pitch and I hit him with the ball and he started crying. I was feeling very guilty, so I apologized because he was very little and his father told me that it didn’t matter, but the boy had a very angry face and he looked at me very furious. Then I said sorry to the boy and he said “ok” and he looked to another way. Finally, I wasn’t feeling bad, because I said sorry and I apologize but the boy ran away…"By Zoe

"One day I had a argument in the school with a friend and I said bad things that I didn think before saying them .Then I went to my house,I reflected upon them  and I realised  I was sorry.So then I apologised to that friend, and I felt better then because I had admitted my mistake and I learnt about it."

"It happened once I was in my house  and I wanted to watch TV. My father was watching a football match that was important for him on the TV that I wanted to use. I shouted at him that I needed to see that film. My father was planning to go out to a restaurant with all my family, but when I acted using those  manners, he decided to stay at home and he said that I was not going to take hockey training any more. Later, I felt very guilty and depressed because I love  hockey.
I apologized to him three times so he decided to deprive me from the training for  one week. The moral of this anecdote is that I have to respect adults and think things twice before I talk" By Agustina
"One day when I was in the school a girl in my group of friends said something very sad about me. She gossipped. But I didn't pay attention to her and I gossipped about her private things.The next day I felt  angry with myself; but luckily my friend put herself in my shoes and we apologized to each other, and now we are friends again. I felt relieved after talking to her." By Ludmila
" One day I was at school and I told something to a friend that hurt him. The next day we talked again and I said ”hey, I am so sorry about what happened yesterday”. He told me “ok, I forgive you”. Then I promised that this would never happen again. And we were friends again. After that I felt better because I could apologize, and I knew that everything came back to normality." By Manuel

"One day I had a argument with one of my best friends. This was last 13th of November. It started like this:  Some friends and I were in the last break at school and the girl went to another area of the playground, so I went up to her with other three girls to ask her what had happened, but we were kicked out. So then in the rest of the afternoon we continued discussing.Then I started crying because, the girls said horrible things to me and  to some of my friends too. So on Monday, we all clarified what had happened. Apparently she had felt uncomfortable about something we had said. We all knew that we didn't want to argue. And after talking things over, we all felt better." By Mora        

Dogs were barking about Newton and Jabber´s accident! 

According to Marco who has done some research, the difference between gossip and rumour is :
Rumour refers to spreading specific information about someone or something that has not been verified. In other words, this information may be true or false.
Gossip refers to talking about someone or something with another person or a group of persons.
