  • get her to talk everything. Tell her quit winning you will listen to her when she stops winning. my boys are smart too and i told them that if they keep winning they go to there room.

  • yep! punish her for temper tantrums. Just like teaching them any thing else. reinforce the good and punish the bad behavior

  • Time out works for my 3 year old, if she crys or whinges and wont stop, she goes to time out, she hates it, so it works well. Whatever punishment works for your child.

  • You can start by telling her that big girls don't cry about little things. Big girls find something else to do that makes them happy.

  • IGNORE it! Tell her whe she is ready to use her Big Girl words to come find you and you can chat. Then walk away...Be consistent and it WILL work..

  • I ingore my son until he uses words, that seems to work, but sometimes it take alot of patience waiting for them to get to that point lol. Whinning is so much easier..
