This has been on my mind since my daughter was accused by one of her playmates of being a tattletale because she came to me to help her address bullying and name-calling that was happening while she and some neighbors were playing outside.

Please don’t ever tell your kids not to “tattle” or “snitch” on anyone. It’s the knowledge that they can tell you anything at anytime that protects them from pedophiles and bullies, etc. If you aren’t their soft place to land, they’ll find someone else to confide in, and that could be a very bad thing.

  1. I’m glad she felt comfortable talking to you! And that she can count on you to confide in.
