Reporting vs. Tattling

What a nice sign, to help break down the appropriate times for reporting and identifying when tattling may be occurring. I know it is so important for my 3s (and my 8 year old, for that matter) to know that they are being heard and that their feelings are being acknowledged. Usually I can talk them through it "how did that make you feel? What should you tell so-and-so? What would make you feel better?" but some days I wish they would talk it over with the tattle monster.
