This month, our Been There Done That squad answers the question: How do you deal with whining when your child is asking for something? How do you approach the situation and help them to learn to better express themselves?
Oh…yes…we hit a whine-fest lately!
And my response totally depends on my mood!
Sometimes I simply say, “I don’t speak whine, I have no idea what you are saying or asking for” And I ignore the whining until she finds her words or gets distracted and moves on to something else.
Jodi is originally from Montréal, Quebec but spent a few years in Northern New Brunswick after graduating from University. She moved to Kamloops in the Spring of 2010 with her family and works as an educational assistant. Her 7 and 8 year old keep her really busy as they love exploring the area and enjoying what Kamloops has to offer!
