Your Question

How to make my dad forget about what wrong I have done.

Answer

Hey there, thanks for taking the time to ask your question.
 
You are asking how can you make your dad forget the wrong you have done.
 
It’s completely normal to feel anxious about your dad being upset with you. First off, take a deep breath and remember that everyone makes mistakes—it’s a part of growing up. Ask your dad can you have some time to talk to him; choose a time when there most likely to be no interruptions, and talk to him with honesty and openness. Start by expressing your understanding of the situation and acknowledging where you went wrong. This shows maturity and responsibility, which parents can appreciate.
 
Next, share your feelings and perspective, helping your dad understand your side of the story. Use “I” statements to avoid passing blame to anyone else. Let him know you value his opinion and want to work towards making things right. This should foster a sense of communication and mutual respect.
 
Apologise sincerely and explain the steps you’re willing to take to rectify the situation. Whether it’s learning from the mistake or taking specific actions, demonstrating your commitment to improvement can go a long way. Lastly, be patient; rebuilding trust takes time, and consistently showing your dad that you’re dedicated to positive change will likely help him gradually forget about the mistake. Remember, it’s okay to look for guidance from adults you trust during this process.
