it's a manipulation tool. she knows it works with you. help her to see that it is ineffective for getting what she wants, and it'll subside.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

When ever she's not being whinney give her lot's of attention ((like play games, talk to her, sing, ect.) Whenever she is being whinny tell her you're not going to pay attention to her when she does that. Also if she starts to throw a tantrum from that ignore her, but make sure she doesn't hurt herself(kids like to be very dramatic when having a tantrum and may throw them selves around. but with my son i do that and he usually stop's because he know's he wont get attention when he's doing that.
