I whined with them. They find it very annoying and frustrating. Sometimes it is very funny to see their reactons! But everytime you give in to him your are just reinforcing his belief that if he whines long enough or loud enough he will get what he wants. I gave in at times too but not enough to let them know it s okay fo them to do it. My 8 yr old did it in the store once and started crying cause he wanted something so you think give it to him people are staring.(He was like 2 at the time) I left my cart in the store with half of the stuff I needed in teh first place and went out to the car with him. I told him we would not go back in there until he stopped and behaved himself and I would not take him to the store again. I turned on the music and at there for about 45 minutes. When he stopped we went back in and I Don't ahve a problem now cause I always told him "Do you want to go out to the car?" heehee
