How do you respond? Do you listen and add your own gossip? Do you ask for more information?
Do you say something along the lines of, “It’s not good to build yourself up by tearing others down. Gossip isn’t welcome here and shouldn’t be welcome anywhere.”
Trust me when I say that this will be the building block that shows a child that demeaning others is not a good thing. Kids are never too young to learn to be kind to others.
