it's probably not healthy.

Children are little people; our brothers and sisters in islam. I'm not a mom, but i would imagine covering their faults and speaking well of them would be a wonderful favor you can do for them.

Don't do it in front of them and if you have to (just to know how to correct this fault or behavior) then do it to someone you trust not just for the heck of complaining...
I guess this goes back to me first and foremost with a twist: complaining about siblings lol...I should work on that inshaAllah!
I think they feel humiliated when their faults are pointed out to the family right in front of them...I've seen it happen way too many times!!!
