How does everyone here deal with Tatal-tailing?
The rule in my house is work it out, unless you are being hurt or someone is in danger. I don't want my kids coming to me for every little thing and not learning how to sort through their own problems.
On the other hand I don't want them to think they can't come to me at all if they are being mistreated.
I have my cousins son over today, he;s been here since 8:30Am, no nap (he's 5, my sons are 6 and 3 and still take naps, I'm not sure what he does, should have asked) so by 7:30 they started grating on each others nerves a bit and that's when the tatal-tailing started.
Not so much from my kids, but from their cousin (who has been being a terror!) I'm exgasted by the way LOL
Finally I said, "No more! Stop coming in to tell on each other every 5 seconds. I don't want to hear it"
I just went in to get them to watch a new years special I told them they could watch and my 3 year old had a bloddy lip because his cousin punched him.
Um THAT was something he should have told me. Sp now I'm pulling out my hair, mostly gray now, at 24 (just kidding, I don't have gray hair, at least not yet LOL) and wondering what everyone else does about the insesant "Mooooooooooooooomy he did thiiiiiiiiiiiis to me!!!!"
