Granted, that's a pretty card and essentially, it gets the message across. Or does it?

Because there are times when adults are just like a toddler who shrugs his shoulders when asked if he knows what he's saying sorry for.

It's not the best tactic, because all the other person wants is acknowledgement of the specific issue that upset them in the first place. They want you to be truly repentant for your actions, so that you'll think twice before you do it again.

So instead of a blanket, all encompassing 'sorry card', we propose you start making your own, similar to these:
