  • Corner time everytime he whines, DD is the same way when she sees her dad, shes little miss princess who gets to do whatever she wants. we just give her time outs until she can either stop whining or ask for what she wants without whining and throwing a fit.

  • The easiest way I got my son to stop "although temporarily" was to turn to him and say "I can not understand you when you whine, when you can talk in your calm voice then I will be able to listen" I repeated this endlessly sometimes, but eventually he did "get it" and stopped.

  • My ex intentionally undermines my authority, blatantly telling the children he will reward them for bad behavior. All they have to do is talk on the phone with him and the result is misery.
    I explain that bad behavior does not get them what they want, and make them sit down with their toes straight, and their hand sin their lap. They *hate* it. They also stop whining.

  • My daughter has been doing that lately too... I tell her that I cannot understand what she is saying and I make her sit in the "time-out chair" until she can talk to me like a big girl, and I walk away from her
