No Tattling!

Between me and my best friend, we have 6 kids, ages 14 months, 3 years, 6 years, 7 years, 9 years, and 10 years. Somehow, they all get along very well. We're together so much that they are all like siblings, which leads to sibling type problems, like tattling. So one day when all of them except the baby were playing outside, I made a list and taped it to the front door at their eye level.

For any of the following feel free to come find the closest adult...
  1. If there is anything gross coming out of your body (blood, bones, vomit)
  2. If you lose one of the smaller kids
  3. If there is a wild animal
  4. If there is a stranger
  5. If there is rock throwing
  6. If there is hitting, biting, or kicking
For anything else, figure it out yourselves!
And remember, we love you!

Believe it or not, this actually has helped cut down on the tattling! If anybody has anything to add to the list please let me know.
