  • Punish both equally. My mother did this to us. Yes I was the tattle tale! lol. But she said if we aren't dying or killing someone then don't tell. And if we did we both got punished equally. One for doing something wrong, the other for tattling.

  • well part of the problem is he makes up lies and people arent always doing what he says

  • Then he gets punished for the lies. Which IMO are one of the worst things he can do and is dealt with the harshest of punishments.
