Oh how I despise tattling and my daughters do a lot of it, even my 22 month old! I saw a Pinterest pin of a “Reporting vs Tattling” poster. The link took me to a first grade teacher’s website. She had written out difference between reporting and tattling. Since my daughter can’t read yet, I decided to add clipart to my poster so she could understand the differences. I included a link to my Reporting VS Tattling poster in case anyone wants a copy of my work!
I introduced it to Sophie and hung it on the side of our kitchen desk. I faced the poster toward our family room, the place where most of the tattling occurs! Sophie seemed to like the poster until I hung it up and told her it would be there for a long time. She started to cry. We will see how it goes!
