My 3 yr old has been taking whining to a new level. I know kids whine, but she's way over the top with it. Her siblings (she has 4) went though a brief stage of it around that age, but she seems to be trying to make a career of it.
Ignoring it and refusing to give her things unless she uses her "nice voice" isn't working. She just continues on. It's gotten to the point now that every time she speaks she whines. She also has a temperament and is a bit sprited. She is having fits daily when she doesn't get exactly as she wants. We're not giving it, we couldn't anyway, with 7 people in the house that wouldn't work.
I'm thinking I may have to now issue consequences for the constant whining, complaining and fits. Ignoring it isn't working and neither is talking to her and not giving it. She just keeps going.
Would it be a bad idea to just keep putting her in time out, even if she ended up there 50 times a day? Do you think she'd get it? Does anyone have any suggestions for a extreme whiner?
She's been doing it for months now and the whole family is over it. Even my 6 yr old is complaining.
