My 2 1/2 year old has been whining for 2 weeks constantly. What is the most effective way to stop this? It's enough to drive you insane after a while!

 I ask him to use his regular voice but feel like I'm saying it 300 times a day.

Let me know if you find out lol, honestly it gets worse, 3/4/5/6 are peak whine years. I would just keep reminding him that whining is not going to get him what he wants.

I have no idea. My four year old still does it. I tell her to speak normally.

 It depends. What is causing the whining?

No clue, he sleeps 12 hrs a night and takes a 2 he nap. He eats a lot and snacks. Just seems to be whining constantly anymore.

I always tell my 3 year old that I can't understand her and she needs to speak clearly. Even if I know what she wants I will pretend like I don't know what she is saying.

The more you highlight it the more he will do it. He's using it to get your attention and it's working. Good luck it is frustrating but it will stop.
