It is from the age of four when boys and girls begin to have a conscience of honesty, something that will make them understand the rules that both he and others must comply with. When someone does not follow these 'norms' imposed by adults, they have the need to have to tell the adults so that they can remedy such 'injustice'.
When a child is 'told' that something is happening, the action of the adult is essential, so parents will have to act calmly to know what really happens before acting or deciding consequences.
Even if a child knows what is happening, the adult will never be able to punish the acts that he has not seen with his own eyes even if what happened is evident.
Sneak children who want justice to be done above all are in a way looking for an adult response to what they just said. It is a way of wanting to 'handle the situation', for this reason adults have to remain calm all the time and offer responses such as 'I'll take care of it later'. In this way, the whistle-blower will see that his accusation has not been immediately successful, which in a way is what he was waiting for when he went to snitch things.
If what the whistle-blower said was true and the other child needs to be scolded, it should always be done out of the presence of the accuserIf you overreact, the child will see that snitching is a positive attitude and will reinforce the snitching behavior for both the snitch and the other child. Furthermore, when the whistleblower child snitches to annoy another child, this behavior cannot be reinforced since the objective is not to warn of any danger, but only wants to annoy another.
In the event that the child really does tell about something to avoid harm, in this case, always reward the snitch who go from 'snitch' to 'informant', so you can have an attitude of gratitude, something that when it comes to other information you have to downplay that 'tip off'.
In most cases, these accusations are usually the consequences of wanting to attract attention or jealousy for some reason, and the child may also have low self-esteem. In this sense, it is very important to work on children's empathy from a very young age, to teach them to tell the truth and to understand that gossip is not the same as relevant information.
Empathy will make you understand the harm you can do to another child when you accuse, so over time you can understand when a person can feel humiliated and when things can really be told. Sometimes it will be more than enough to use the simple phrase: 'Don't laugh at Lucas (or the name of the accused boy or girl), would you like them to do the same to you?'
