How to turn tattling into an English lesson

I could overhear my son from the other room, telling his brother, "I'm telling!"

I explained that he wasn't telling, except that I just happened to overhear him at that moment. Otherwise, he wasn't currently 'telling,' but he was "going to tell."

By the time we finished discussing and learning the finer points of English, my son forgot what he planned to tattle.

Works every time.
