I have a toddler with delays, including speech. She's three but acts like a 24 month old. I get SOOOO frustrated with her whining. I end up yelling at her way more than I need to. What can I do to help me keep from doing this? My mom yelled at my brother and me growing up and I don't want to be like that.

Generations change! so, for starters you have that on your side. Take a deep breath!. Babies whine they don't stop sometimes until they are 6 7 or 8 really.... Its also a different kind of whine each year. Know that it is age appropriate, but make it known that it is no way to communicate. Try Try your best to teach your child by your example. It really takes a lot of patience but it is worth it in the end. Use works like, "please choose better words" and keep saying this often. You have to be consistent, babies respond to the same words over and over again, like, if you write on the wall with the crayon you cannot have to thecrayon and we will try again tomorrow. Good luck! P.,S. have some cheese with that WINE!! LOL
