My almost 4 year old seems to be constantly whining. It never stops. I've read all the articles and help stuff saying that if she's whining then there's something wrong but I don't know....she never stops. I am at the point where I probably over-react instead of ignoring it but I am so tired of listening to it. It gets my back up immediately and I feel like sceaming at her. I've tried everything from taking her favourite toy to ignoring it to screaming at her (which I am loathe to admit but would be remiss if I didn't). My Mum, who has had 5 of her own, says some kids are just like that and there's not much you can do about it except wait until she grows out of it. But how long does it take? Just as an aside - she is an angel at kindergarten - I never hear any complaints and they tell me every detail of what goes on each day so I assume they would mention this too if it were happening. Anyone got any advice?
