Mariah of Giggles Galore found an excellent solution to what I imagine is a common problem. Her kids started tattling on each other all the time: “she took my car,” “he won’t share with me!” And of course, she didn’t want to hear every little complaint. I’m sure it would drive anyone up the wall!
So, she made Murray the Tattle Monster out of an old tissue box. Aside from being adorable, he is a useful tool. The children writer down their tattles and feed them to Murray, instead of telling them directly her. If it works, it sounds like an excellent solution to me!
