For the last four years, I have WANTED my little ones to come to me with offenses. They had no problem solving skills to start with, and the only way I could help them was if I knew about it.
But now, I see something new. My older children (four and nearly six) do have some problem solving skills. And I’ve noticed that they’ve been coming to me with offenses that I’m not as happy to help them with.
What makes the difference? To find out, we have to define tattletale. That we’ll do next.
