Dd will be 7 in March. The past few months she has been on this "it's not fair" kick.

"his cookie has four chocolate chips and mine only has three. It's not fair!"

"I have homework and he doesn't. It's not fair!"

"Everybody else took their ds to school and I forgot mine. Its not fair!"

Omg!! Every single day she finds something that isn't fair. I've told her time and again that not everything is fair all the time, but she doesn't understand. I realize she's young and probably won't understand this for a while, but the whiny "it's not fair" thing drives me nuts! Lol. Am I the only mom who hates this phrase? When will it end? Lol.

 My dad used to tell us, "Life is tough, get a helmet." then he'd whack us upside the head. lol

Haha.  My solution was to have my kids 8 years apart, so they never competed for the same thing at the same time. Seriously, I'm lucky to say they really never went through that phase, thank God.

DD1 has never said it.  Does she have siblings?  Maybe that's why DD1 never went through that phase.  I doubt she will at this point, as DD2 is nearly 11 years younger.

I get that as well.   DD understands life isnt always fair and she cant always win at games.  That is when the not fair comes into play, if she doesnt win a game we are playing.  It is developmentally common for the 6-7 yr olds for this.
