how can i get ds to stop doing it.
he starts within 10 minutes of waking up for the day and does it ALL.DAY.LONG.it is grating my nerves. sometimes its the whining voice while complaining sometimes its the fake crying whining.
he talks all the time and is able to use words to describe what he is feeling but the rest of the time he is whining
thoughts and suggestions are welcome... i have tried nearly every trick in my early childhood teacher book and none of them are working. dh thinks that ds is bored and whining as a result but he whines even when he is engrossed in an activity. he whines when he gets into trouble, he whines when dd potties in her diaper... he just whines. (just this morning he was shining while laughing about going to the library to check out new books.
dd only whines when she is tired hungry or hurting (which seems to be all the time since ds is always being mean to her)
