Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Do you give in to her when she does? Kids do what-ever works. Try ignoring her if she's whining for something. I always just said no, whiney kids get nothing.... and it seems to work! The only time my 4 year old whines is when she's sick or REALLY tired... Same for giving in to tantrums. You know they have to try... they're kids, but don't give in!
If it worked even just one time, she believes it will work again in the future. She is willing to try and try and try. It will be hard to politely say, "That's not how to ask" and walk away, but you can do it. If you are consistent, this bad habit can be broken quickly! Be encouraged.
