  • I usually say, "Honey, I can't understand you when you whine, so I can't help you until you ask me politely in your normal voice". I was consistent and didn't give in. The whining is no more :-)

  • I did the same thing as Kenzie did. I can't stand whinning and didn't respond to it at all. My kids got ignored untill they could talk without whinning.

  • I thought you were a big girl/boy now. It worked for me.

  • A friend of mine (mother of 4) tells her children "I don't understand whinese" and her children usually speak with out whining. I just ask my children to "talk like big boys" and they usually do.
