Kimberley Clayton Blaine: We all know kids whine. It's a passage of childhood. Whining is a normal part of early childhood, but it's probably the most annoying behavior for adults to have to encounter.
Children whine for many types of reasons. They whine when they are tired, when they are hungry, when they are bored, lonely, or when they just need a little bit of love.
Looking for patterns is the key. If you take your child out on errands during lunch time or nap time, they are more prone to whining. I know if children are over dressed or they are too cold they whine as well.
We figured out with my son, whenever he had a long sleeve sweatshirt on, he tended to whine more
Unknown Speaker: A lot of times when children wake up, they are discombobulated and whine because they are not fully awake. Don't take it personally. Just be patient and offer a snack and love.
Kimberley Clayton Blaine: Being attuned to your child is an important part of preventing the whining from occurring.
Unknown Speaker: Attuned and attentive parents have children who whine and tantrum less than other children. Here are some tips on how to help stop the whiny behavior.
First determine if your child is hungry, tired, physically uncomfortable, or over-stimulated. If so, meet the child's needs immediately. If whining is for attention, let your child know that you can't understand what she is saying, when her words sound like that. Ask your child to use her regular voice. If she continues to whine, simply state, when you use your regular voice, I will listen. But when you whine, I can not hear what you are saying.
Once your child uses her regular voice, validate her current feelings and continue to listen. For example, you can say, you are sad that your friends left the park early. What would you like to do now? Setting the 'No whining' standard early through conversations with your child is important to prevent whining from becoming a way of getting attention.
If that another day, your child slips into whining again, simply remind him of how you can hear him best. Once the whining ceases, a simple statement such as, thank you for using your regular voice this time, is appropriate. Excessive praise is not necessary.
