I have a student who tattles constantly. I told her that I would not listen unless she is hurt or someone else is hurt. Mom does not like this one bit. Tells me that daughter feels like I am not paying attention to her. She is also one that wants to go to the nurse frequently. I won't let her unless she is feverish or about to get sick.
