  • You don't. Unfortunately, she will deny her child behaves that way and she will only be mad at you lol. Its not worth it. I know how you feel:)

  • It can be frustrating. I have a dear friend that her child is clingy and whiny. BUT my friend never lets her daughter out of her sight because she paranoid. She will not even send her to school.

  • I feel your pain. My niece is a terrible whiner, CAN'T STAND IT, but what can you do? I just have to ignore it and not let it be something that comes between my and my sis.

  • why not address the whineyness with the child... tell them you can understand whining and don't pay attention to them till they stop whining

  • If the child is always whiney then the parent already knows it, and if the child is only whiney when staying with you then it's something you need to address with the child while he/she is in your care. Try working on the whining by showing the child an acceptable way to talk and letting him/her know you won't give him/her what they want when they whine about it. If you don't see some improvement then maybe ask the parent how they deal with it at home. I wouldn't come right out and say "your kid is a whiney brat and he/she drives me crazy," but you can say you are worried about it and would like to know how they address that type behavior at home so you can be consitent. GL!
