My daughter constantly repeats herself!! Its driving me and my husband crazyyyyy!!! for example: "can i have more juice, mom? can i have more juice, mom? can i have juice please, mom?" over and over and over again! She does it even after we have answered her question, or acknowledged that she has said something...

We are ALWAYS telling her "you only need to tell us one time, we hear you!!" day in and day out but nothing seems to work!! I have to practically yell "I HEAR YOU HUNNY!!!!!! PLEASE STOP REPEATING YOURSELF!" before she stops!

ANY TIPS OR ADVICE would be very helpful!!

You could try and tell her that mommy and daddy only hear what she says when she says it one time. If she keeps saying it just ignore her when she says it. she is only trying to get your attention and see what you two will say.

ive done that, when im really at my wits end in the day... she just continues to repeat back and forth... sometimes she gets really angry and starts whinning after a while but still doesnt stop! When she was really little and would pitch a fit, and i would do it back at her, she would just laugh!

i will always acknowledge her, the first time...unless i did not hear her, then i will say "im sorry, id did not hear you!" we went for months with ignoring it completely and it never got better! thats why my sanity is now hanging by a thread! nothing weve tried has worked!

I know you said you ignore it, but if you ignore it a few times then start reacting to it again she may keep doing it for the reaction. Try to answer her the first time she asks then ignore it if she repeats it. I know it's hard, but just go about your life like she's not driving you bananas.

Nothing i've tried has worked either, telling him he only needs to ask once, or I heard him the first time. I've even had to start telling him there's no talking at the table cause he's driving me nuts. bah! lol

weve done the ignoring it bit and telling her to say it one time..nothingssssssss worked! usually if i say "say it one time and then stop!" she will stare at me like a deer in headlights and continue to repeat herself! even if i answer her question, the first time she asks it, she keeps asking it! if i tell her to please stop repeating herself, she will whisper it under her breath!
