Anyone else with a 4 yo girl in the "whiney" stage?

How are you handling it/discouraging it? My dd is literally crying at the drop of a hat. I'll admit, she has been more than a little spoiled, but she has definetely been taught manners and knows what is expected of her. We have never tolerated bad behavior, so I'm not sure why she is acting like such a little diva all the time lately! She never likes the outfits I choose for her, etc... very stubborn and independent!

  • Mine is! I just tell him we can't help him when he talks whiney. I also refuse to listen to it. He keeps it up, he can go to his room.I also tell him everytime it will not be tolerated. I try to never give into it or reward his whining in any way
