He is constantly whiny. He cries over everything (drops a toy, whines; wants water, whines; sister yells, he whines, etc) and screams and whines instead of just talking to communicate. I've tried ignoring the whining. I've tried telling him to use his words because I don't understand him when he whines. I've tried timeouts for him to calm down when several warnings don't stop the whining. Help.
I thought it was a phase, but it's been a year of this. My husband is getting really frustrated with him and called him a sissy boy (yes, I know how bad that is to do) within ear shot of my son a couple nights ago. So, for my son's sake I've got to get this whining to stop.
He is a middle child. He has a big sister that starts school for the first time next week (which I'm hoping helps a bit) and a baby sister. I'm a SAHM, so he doesn't go to daycare.
