Wow that's sad. I would say that's childish, but you know that's what family do.
A little off topic, but as I was growing up in my childhood and teenage years, apparently apologizing was the easier thing to do in life to get myself outta crazy and troublesome situations, but I never liked apologizing, so I refused to and endured a lot of things that I didn't have to. All in all I think you should just apologize even if if wasn't your fault.
