I tell them, no, they don't need, they want and you don't always get what you want.
I have a 2yr old. When she starts doing that, I redirect her attention to something. Kind of like "Oh look Lilly it's a shiny toy".. That kind of thing. She forgets about whatever it is that she "needs" and starts playing with the pretty shiny toy lol.
Same way I handle the 'I wants' if you say you want something, it's a guaranteed NO.
Unless I ask for your input, I don't care if you want Hello Kitty fruit snacks (or w/e). I nipped that one quick. I cannot stand bratty kids in the store screaming (or whining) at their parents that they WANNNNNNNNNT (or need) ______.
