Maturity is maintaining the humane balance of saying thank you and sorry, lots.
We raise children in New Zealand to say “thank you” and “sorry.”
For example “thank you for all of the farm land, so we can now make the best ice cream in the world.” And “sorry for terrorizing your kids and old ladies to run a police training exercise in a remote farming valley” are still words some members of our police team, are learning to say.
Especially to civilians of the Tuhoe tribe of Maori in New Zealand. The smuggery of government and some public servants, continues – on the scale of South Africa 1970′s breaches of human and civil rights.
