I am despirate for advice here. My daughter just got over being really sick so of course during that time frame I babied her. Well now she expected to get whatever she wants and me to come running when she cries or whines. She just wont stop......any advice on how to break this habit???

When she cries or whines for things, don't give it to her. If my son whines, he doesn't get what he wants. In fact, I take it away for longer. He's 4 yrs old though.

She's still young, so this is harder to do. It's important that you don't give her what she wants until after she calms down. After she is calm, then you can ask her to show you nicely what she wants (if you don't already know). Make your decision from there if she can have it.

Stick with it, be consistent, and don't reinforce the bad behavior by giving her the things that she wants.
