The little Oni has this thing (I'm not sure where she learned it) where she'll 'machine-gun' an apology: 'I'msorryI'msorryI'msorryI'msorry!' We've actually been working on getting past the words and getting her to understand the 'why' of an apology. Why should one be sorry about running through the neighbor's flowers? Running through the flowers squishes them, and makes them look yucky. Mr(s). Neighbor did a lot of work to make the flowers look pretty. That way, the 'I'm sorry' is more genuine instead of something Mommy (or Daddy) makes her say.
Mine hasn't started the machine gun apologies yet. She has started automatically saying it when she does something wrong, thinking it will get her out of trouble. I thank her for apologizing (if it's me she's saying sorry to) and then she still gets her punishment for whatever she did wrong. When her time out is done we talk about why what she did was wrong, and how she would feel if the same thing was done to her. This, usually, elicits a much more sincere apology, without any prompting, and then she gets hugs and we move on.
If she really doesn't feel she did something wrong, you won't get her to say it no matter how much trouble she's in though. Example, one of the girls at her daycare pulled her hair and wouldn't let go, so she turned her head and bit the girl...hard. We tried to get them to apologize to each other since they were both wrong but she just dug in her heels and said, "But SHE hurt me FIRST Mom!" She got into trouble for biting and we've been reenforcing the rule that if one of the other kids touches her in a mean way she needs to tell C and let them
get into trouble instead of her. lol
A Facebook page is constantly updated; what is said there is current and relevant to the applicant/employee's character. It's not at all the same as denying them a job or promotion based on something they tweeted when they were 18.
Except that this IS who she is right now. Granted in a couple of years I would agree and hope that she has grown up and that employers will look past one stupid tweet when she was younger. Some may not though, and it's on parents to try and make their kids realize that what they put out on the internet is not
like a note passed in class. It can't be thrown away or hidden and could have far longer reaching consequences then they think.
I have a FB page and am very
careful about what I put on it. I use it mostly to keep in contact with friends and family out of state so it is mostly just updates about the munchkin and general life stuff. IF I put anything on there about work, the worst I let it get is that 3, 12hr shifts in a row is tiring, or that it was a long day and I'm ready to relax. I make sure to NEVER actually say anything negative about my job, patients, management etc, even if I think it at times. I may tell my friend such things privately, or on the phone, but never in a public forum that a new potential Boss could see and have it come back to bite me in the ass!
