my 4 year old whines like a baby everytime he is not happy. ESPECIALLY when he is tired. We moved into a bigger house so each of our kids could have their own room so his older sister would stop waking him up but she still sneaks in when she can. I am not kidding, if she wakes him, he whines ALL DAY. any tips? i feel like we have tried everything!
If you find out the answer to this question, you'll be wealthy!! My son is the middle child and at 5 he whines like he did at 4 and 3 years old. He only does it with us, at home--not at school. If that helps you at all. I just send him to his room or make him sit on the stairs for a time out. I will give him a rest time, and if he sleeps ok, if not that is ok too. Some kids are whiny. I use the phrase---"you are hurting my ears when you talk like that." They do it because we respond to it. I don't know how to totally ignore him, but I do think eventually he'll grow out of it. Good luck.
