Guidance Notes by Sona Miller A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue by Julia Cook is a terrific book!! My primary classes have been hearing this story about a boy who tattles so much that he gets the dreaded “tattle tongue.” I shared this story with my classes as a way to open up the discussion on the differences between tattling (trying to get someone in trouble) and reporting (trying to get someone some help). The students learned that if a person is in danger or if someone could get hurt; they must tell someone and this is never con- sidered tattling. Take the opportunity to talk with your children about tattling and reporting. Help them to understand situations that might arise where they will need to report to an adult.
