I have a 16 year old foster child (girl) who tattles a lot on other children. What should I do?
I have a 16 year old girl that tattles on everything that my biological girls do. For instance: My oldest daughter wiped off the counter tops and dropped food on the floor and didn't pick it up, The Foster child came to me and told me. The things she tells me isnt hurting or doing any kind of harm, she just tattles a lot. And my teenagers are not liking her because of it. I have 15 and 16 girls. They distance their selves from her because they cannot trust her at all. It really upsets them that she runs and tells on them for everything. What/How should I tell her NOT to tell me everything they do?
