Whining is not only irritating and sanity-threatening, but it’s also incredibly persuasive behavior on your child’s part since a parent will do anything to Just. Make. It. Stop.
No wonder it’s high up on the list of tools that younger kids use to get what they want.
While you can’t force a child to stop whining, you can show them that it will not get them what they want which should ultimately shut it down.
Remember: Don’t give in – ever. The minute you do, your kid will see that whining is effective and will start doing it again.
