  • get used to it....it's a phase. brace yourself for the "why? but why? why? huh? why?" phase...if they haven't started yet

  • yep. annoying as heck. just be a broken record and every time remind them to use their inside voice. also tell say you can't understand a word they are saying when they are whining. they have to have big kid voices for you to understand and possibly fix whatever it is. keep at it, they'll eventually get it.
