A child that keeps nagging and whining pushes nearly every parent's buttons.
And it seems that regardless of the issue your child is whining about, what seems to bug the most is the WAY in which they bring it to your attention. When they whine like that it kind of comes from a victim-entitlement attitude.
So what we are wanting is to support our children in speaking 'CLEARLY' to us, so we can actually 'HEAR' what they are saying, and maybe out of that we can support them.
Just telling your child NOT to whine is like putting fuel on a fire... it's counter productive and leaves them feeling like you don't care.
This lesson gives you the exact wording you can say that will get your child to stop whining and move you forward in resolving what is needed.
