"Never be afraid to apologize to your child. If you lose your temper and say something in anger that wasn’t meant to be said, apologize. Children need to know that adults can admit when they are wrong."

American Humane Society (via maninsun)

Yeah but also be careful.  Apologies are good, but changed behavior is the only thing that makes it better.

Though if you apologize after you hit them, and hey you were wrong this time, it doesn’t really work.
