Adam is crying, looking sad and thoughtful
Adam was a bright boy who loved to play and have fun. But sometimes, he would say things that hurt others. He didn't mean to be rude, but it just happened. One day, Adam made his friend Tod cry by calling him a mean name. Adam felt bad but didn't know what to do. He wanted to say something to make it better. But the words just wouldn't come out. Adam decided to talk to his mom about it.

Adam looked puzzled. 'But what if he doesn't forgive me?' he asked. 'Saying sorry shows you care,' his mom explained. 'It's a magic word that can make things better.' Adam decided to give it a try.

Then he smiled. 'Thank you, Adam,' he said. 'I forgive you.' Adam felt a huge weight lift off his shoulders. He realized his mom was right.
