Douglas Wilson on Talebearing Teenagers

"Tattling" is gossip, not to just anyone, but to authorities.

Douglas Wilson speaking to teens on the topic of talebearing:

For you young people, this part of your life is a white water stretch of the river. And one of the most treacherous rapids that you will need to navigate is the challenge presented by the sins of others, and by the glaring sins of others. When do you keep silent, and when do you tell somebody? Not surprisingly, Scripture provides us with a guardrail on both sides of the road.
Good biblical and practical counsel from Pastor Wilson, including a focus on the motives and attitudes of the heart.
