 When dd starts pitching a fit for no reason we put her on the whiny couch. She has to sit there until she finds a solution to her internal turmoil. What to you do when your LOs have a melt down?

Your toddler has to find a solution to her internal turmoil??? I think your expectations for your toddler are a little high, JMO.

yes, she randomly starts whining. We set her on the sofa a few min later she stops so she can go play again. Kids are smarter than people give them credit for.

I so agree with this.  We can teach kids from the very start to take control of their emotions.  They don't know how to blame their problems on others yet.  Ha ha.

Quoting dudestfd:

My boys (both 4) don't whine because we never let them. Some people have different expectations I guess. We live in a no whining house. Instead we talk about what is upsetting us. Why are we mad or sad or are we just bored. But def no whining!

I tell them I can't understand them until they use a normal tone of voice.  If they keep whining, I restate my request for a normal tone.  After a few times, they get it and then calm down.

I tell him that until he can stop whining and speak to me like a person, I'm not going to acknowledge him. He'll whine for a few minutes, realize it's getting him nowhere, and go back to speaking calmly and saying please and thank you. I know he needs a nap when he cries when I tell him no for something.

 My DS is 4.5 and if he starts his whining, I walk away and tell him, "I don't talk to kids who whine and kids who whine have to go in their room and lay down." That generally makes him stop.
