My almost 21 1/2 month has been doing nothing but whinning about everything

What do you do about whinning and trying to get through to them that whinning isn't the answer. She knows how to ask for something by saying please but still she whines about everything lately.

  • I refuse to acknowlege them when they whine. I tell them I will not speak with you when you whine. You are a big boy/girl use your words. I refuse to give in to it. It works. 4 kids proves it works.

  • My son is getting really bad with the whining. I just walk away when he starts. When he can ask me normally I will give him an answer.
