Carol and Mike discover that Cindy has been eavesdropping on private conversations and snooping into private affairs, and then talking about those instances, both which they try to tell her is wrong, especially as Cindy sees what she's doing as being fun. Their words don't seem to have any effect on Cindy, her tattling which they hope is only a phase through which she is going. As her tattling continues, she begins to get ostracized by her siblings, who don't trust her. However, they all find that they cannot keep Cindy totally in the dark about every aspect of their lives. Cindy may only learn that what she is doing is wrong after her tattling has a negative consequence in a way she didn't envision. Cindy also has to learn the difference between tattling and when it's important to talk about things that may seem private or confidential. Written by Huggo
