    Sometimes an apology with a big helping of contrition.

    It’s like pulling teeth to get this story to the surface.

    Most kids out-grow this sort of behavior. The rest run for Congress.

    To some extent, people live up or down to their parents’ expectations. So it is a bad idea for her mother to assume that she did something wrong. That said, apologies are nearly worthless. People need to focus on restitution, not empty words.

    I think she was talking smack about the boy Kaytlyn has her eye on.

    What about an open-ended question – Why is she mad at you?

    I’m afraid not.

    People can usually tell a false apology. It is even worse than the original offense.

    The conversation would go better if the mom didn’t accuse her of something right away. Simply ask why Kaytlyn is mad at her. An apology is worthless if you keep doing the bad thing.

    This is going to take a while I bet.

    Who the heck is Katlyn? That should be forgotten about quickly enough. My big problem was my mother was always mad at me. For what reason I don’t know. But she didn’t like any males. People in the neighborhood and my dad thought it highly amusing at the time. And I couldn’t just move out. It would have looked bad to Grandma, because Grandma was on to her. So I had to live outside without food or shelter. But I wasn’t allowed inside until late in the evening. And I wasn’t allowed to move in with friends, or my mother would call them and threaten them. So I was left to finding odd jobs here and there and wandering the neighborhood like a ghost. Unless someone would talk to me, which wasn’t that common. I think there is a pervasive myth that women who don’t like males are holy and good and righteous. My mother didn’t look too righteous when later in her life she started going out with women who had deep voices.

    Some characters we never see, others just appear and disappear.
