    Default Dumb things your child "dobs" on (or has been dobbed on for)

    DD came to me upset the other night. She'd been dobbed on by a friend (to a daycarer at after school care).

    Of course, I asked what she was getting dobbed on for.

    "Because I don't believe in God."

    She was quite unimpressed when I laughed.

    I just explained to her that the daycarer probably looked at the girl doing the dobbing and thought, "Who gives a stuff?" Told her not to worry - that it's not something you deserve to get into trouble for and if she ever DID get into trouble for that kind of thing, to come and tell me as soon as she could.

    I remember last year she was in tears as a friend dobbed on her for liking cheese. lol. Seriously.

    So what dumb things do your kids dob on/get dobbed on for?

    My DS used to be pretty bad for dobbing. He couldn't just play with his friend in peace, he had to run out every 5 minutes to tell me what she was doing. They were 5 at the time so certainly old enough to share and/or sort it out among themselves.

    Now he seems to have gone too far the other way. The other day at after school care he was playing with one of the other children when she bit his ear really hard. He cried (which is REALLY unlike him) so of course the teachers kept wondering why and he wouldn't tell them - eventually they got it out of the other child that she bit him. I picked him up and his ear was still red. Bless him.

    One of my foster kids "dobbed" on another for looking at him. When I worked as a teacher I had kids dobbing on each other for all kids of weird and bazaar things, including wearing red knickers ("but all us girls are wearing pink ones today"), not eating their crusts ("I'm telling Fred's mummy on his cos he threw his crusts in the bin"), not liking a certain food (or liking it!), or using "swear words". This is where it gets complicated as kids interpret different things as swearing. One kid whispered someone had used the "s" word. I asked her to whisper what the word actually was; "silly". It was what he brother called his willy and she thought it was a swear word.

    DD dobbed on DH last night.

    I was washing her hair and she leaned over and said "Daddy didn't put his clean away" *change to a horrified whisper* "He threw them in a ball on the floor!"

    This was followed by "Yep. I SAW him" and an expectant look; like she was suggesting I should leave and deal with this deadly serious issue RIGHT. THAT. SECOND.

    She was also "dobbed" on this morning when I took her to school. One of her little buddies ran up to tell me that DD had different shoes on this morning.

    The neighbours kid always dobs to me that DS went in his house (his garage while the door was open and they're good friends of ours).

    I'm always like 'hurrr... okay?'

    Working in childcare I get it often then funniest one was when one little boy was really upset and walked over to me and said "miss.... Harry just called me a...a....a FART!" then burst into tears, he was so devastated but it was so funny I had to walk away and compose myself being having a chat to Harry about calling our friends mean words!

    Ds was a chronic dobber in kindy, he is an obsessive stickler to the rules, so if another kid wasnt doing what they were told, bam, dob!

    It was bad. Thankfully after much therapy, he will only tell on someone if they hurt him, or steal something of his, or something equally important.

    Ds#2 dobs on his father all the time " mummyyyy *cry* daddy tell me daddy tell me" "what did daddy tell you?" "daddy tell me to eat my dinner *cry*" loll

    I am kind of jealous of all your law keeping children. Ds is four and is going through a defiant stage. He pokes his tongue out, runs away, laughs and hides in small spaces etc when he gets in trouble and last night I literally chased him naked in the front yard after he undressed but refused to get in the bath.. the bolted!!! He gets dobbed on all the time too.. I heard five is the age of dobbing though..
