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. Again mom does not like this. Mom is now going to meet with the principal over all this nonsense. I know my admin. will stand behind me, but how do you handle parents and these types of problems?

You might also rephrase the definition of tattling when the child approaches you. Let them know that tattling is for "letting the teacher know about a probl...See More

Send he to the nurse I have an "extreme tattler" and she complains constantly of not feeling well, having to use the bathroom, getting a drink, etc. I SEND her EVERY TIME she complains to the nurse. If mom gets a call EVERY day to come pick her up, I'm hoping that MOM gets tired of having to pick up her "complainer who cried wolf." The situation wi...See More
