stop tattling

I think I heard this phrase from Barbara Coloroso "Into trouble or out of trouble?" We talk as a group about what it means to tell on someone to get them into trouble (tattling) or out of trouble (letting me know about an injury or that someone needs help of some kind). Once the kids are familiar with the concept, all I have to say is "into or out of?" and they usually drop it if it is tattling. It saves a lot of talking on my part.
