everything causes her to whine, I try to ignore it (and am usually successful) but my husband cant stand it and so gives in (which i think is most of the problem) and now her brother is starting to do it too. Also any suggestions on how to make her stop screaming "i hate you" or "you hate me" at us when she gets mad that she doesnt get what she wants.
She whines over everything, i tell her clean her room she whines, no you cant have a popsicle till after lunch she whines, no i dont have the money for new toy this week she whines, no you cant wear those clothes to the store she whines over everything. I am at wits end with her and really dont know what to do with her

Look her in the eyes (giving her your full attention), tell her to ask you for what she wants without whining. If she continues... tell her that whining is a sign that she is tired and she needs to go to her room to rest. She can only come back out after she has taken a nap. If she comes out and continues, tell her she must not have gotten long enough nap and she needs to go back in. Books on whining (maybe it will help her see herself) http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=39
