My two year old daughter can be down right rotten at times. But she knows enough to "say im sorry mommy" My concern is that she really isn't sorry and she's being manipulative. She does it all the time. Tonight I told her I didn't accept her apology and she can't always apologize and make things ok. I feel like a jerk, how should I handle this situation?Answer Question

Why would I delete my answer or question? I know who's in charge Im trying to get advice from other mother as to how they should handle the situation. If she's truly sorry for her actions, I don't want her to feel bad, and if she isn't she need to know that what she did and saying sorry doesn't correct the problem.

I believe you can be firm, but she is still so young, you have to temper it with plenty of loving as well. teri4lance has the right idea. I would just end it with a hug. She'll get the message that she's done wrong, but being so young, she'll need that affirmation that mommy still loves me.
