My son is 4 years old and whines like nobodies business. He wines about everything. I used to think that children who whined only did it because their parents would give in to them after a certain amount of time, but I never, not once give in to him. I give him the 1-2-3 implementation, and on 3 he always gets a time out which only makes him whine more. I tell him that his "time" in time-out doesn't start until he stops whining or crying and that makes him stop, so he does his time, then gets out and is whining again within 30 minutes about something else. It drives me up the wall. Just curious if anyone else has a compulsive whiner and how they deal.
