no it possible?

Honest to goodness if we made it through
half a day with no whining
I simply wouldn't know what to think.

My darling almost-four-year-old knows her way
around a whine like nobody's business.

Anyone who believes in evolution is a fool
because if it had any
we would have seen this barbaric, yet never-ending
behavior of littles everywhere
disappear centuries ago.

Do you think if I posted this sign all over my
plus taped to my forehead,
it would make a difference??

I'll let you know....
It's worth a try.

Oh never mind.

I want to know if it works too. Katie is the queen of whining these days. She used to be so sweet! Sigh....

If you find a cure- PLEASE let me know!!

MY quote is "use your words, not whining!" It takes a little time , but when whining begins, you hold your hand up in a "stop" sort of thing. You say, whining hurts my ears and everyone else's. I will listen to your words but not your whining. As long as the whining continues you just walk away. BUT as soon as they stop and utter a word, you say, "yes? Did you need something? I also say(if it is around mid day... "oh, you must be feeling sleepy and needing a nap to be this whiney" it usually helps. My 4 and 5 yr old are at that edge of napnes where they can do without it most days but I use it as a sanity time for ME if they are being whiney.

Posting the signs doesn't work.. Tried it.. I even made my own pottery sign. No appreciation for art either!
I have to say, I have the Queen of whining in my preschool class. Even with 2 high maintainence girls in my house I have not seen anything like her abilities! The other 3 year olds even cringe when she starts and you would think they would be immune to it!!!
Just remember when someone is whining in your house there are 50 million whiners whining across the globe!!! Your not alone!!! Sheri
