Teaching Kids About Tattling & Reporting (Teaching Tip #77)

Written by

Two weeks ago I officially re-launched my YouTube page as the “Teaching Kids” channel and posted my first new video of the school year entitled “Teaching Kids to Transition Back into ‘School Mode.’ ” Each of my new “Teaching Kids” videos will feature 1-2 minute tips for educators and parents and will address a wide variety of topics that focus on teaching the whole child, including academics, character, and health.

This Teaching Tip highlights the difference between tattling, which usually focuses on minor issues that do not need to be shared with adults, and reporting, which deals with serious issues that do need to be shared with adults. Once teachers and parents discuss this difference with children, kids become far less likely to tattle in the future. Click here to watch.
