Tayna the Tattling Rattler
Tanya the Tattling Rattler: (Cooperation/Social Skills) Tattling is very confusing to many children. The ability to determine when tattling is okay and when it is a method to bully others can be understood once your child learns the rules of “Teach don’t Tattle”. Tattling may be the result of wanting to get attention or to get someone else in trouble and may not be appropriate. But there are times when it is appropriate to “tattle” and it may be difficulty to know when you should tattle and when you teach… not tattle. In most instances, it is better to get the other child’s cooperation (teaching) not to engage in an undesirable behavior rather than to tattle, which can lead to being ostracized by peers.
