  • The rules for counciling to break confidentialy are:
    1. If the person is hurting themselves
    2. If the person is being hurt
    3. If the person is going to hurt someone

    Otherwise you should keep secrets.

  • i would think those would be rules..but i heard a kid tell my son that u never snitch regardless of whatever..he said if u see who shot your grandma u dont tell...cause u find snitches in i had to ask him are u serious..
    i had to ask him why he would want to be in jail cause dont wont tell on their boy/girl who is out enjoying the taste of freedom..

  • "Snitches get stitches, get thrown in ditches and called bitches." It is a stupid thing that a lot of folks in the lower class neighborhoods believe. Gangster/thug mentality.

  • I teach my kids from little up, if no one is getting hurt, there is no reason to tattle...
