When it comes to apologizing to your mom, you’ve got to know the right way to do it. You may not think it’s that big of a deal, but it can make a big difference in how your mom feels about you.
You have to honestly apologize to a mother you have been rude or hurtful towards. Do not downplay the situation, instead take responsibility for your actions and do not act like it never happened. Explain how sorry you are and let her know that you want to make amends by apologizing directly to her face-to-face.
While this is written in slightly more awkward language, it does tell the story of what I think is being said without any confusion about context.
