No Whining Zone
We have all seen the No Whining sign at some point. But, how do we get our children to obey it. Those little personalities can shift from sweet to whining to straight up jerk in a matter of seconds. It can be hard to keep track of which version of your child you are dealing with let alone keep your cool. I will admit lately I have not been able to keep my cool and I have seen the result of that in my kiddo. He is more whinny and sassy than usual. It is always a good rule of thumb to remember that children are parrots in words and actions so what you do your child will copy. My little ones actions have shown me that as of late I have been short, whiny and sassy! It has also been a bit of a parenting check for me. I realize that his actions are not only a result of my attitude but also a cry for attention. We have been so busy lately that our little man has not had the attention he is craving. Listening to whining for me is the worst. I can't stand that tone of voice and my actions show it. Below is a great link on how to deal with this type of behavior.
