Whining

Support Call 6-12-15

This call covers:

  • If my child starts whining after they get a No answer, do I start the Rule of Three or do I just tell them that I want to know what the have to say but they have to stop whining first?
  • How do I use TSG with my almost-two toddler?
  • My kids sometimes whine while asking to disagree appropriately. Should I let them disagree or tell them to be calm?
  • How do I teach my children that they can't control others, only themselves?
