The Tattle Monster wants to eat your tattling!
Begin by making a chart with your client about tattling versus reporting (great chart for this activity on our Pinterest board here). Help them understand the difference between getting help because someone is hurt compared to getting someone in trouble. Then create your tattle monster, and role playing situations they should ask for help, ways they can try to work through things on their own, and what they can tell their tattle monster. This is also great for caregivers to help their kids start to understand the difference in what is ok to report, and what they can try to work out on their own.
