My daughter is almost 5 & she whines over everything, but only for her Dad & I...She whines about almost everything we ask her to do or pick up, she whines about us not giving her something she wants, she whines about being told she cannot do something, & the most frustrating one is that she whines if one of us is not playing with her every second she is home!! I have no idea what to do!! It is so frustrating & I just want to break down & scream every time she does it because it is so fake sounding & so annoying!! I feel like we are the biggest failure as parents!! HELP please!!

It sounds like all she wants is attention, whether negative or positive. When she starts whining, send her to her room. Tell her that you will not talk to her until she stops. When she does it after told to do something, let her know that if she doesn't stop, she will be put in the corner and afterwards she will still have to do what you told her to do. Don't give in to her demands. It will only make the whining worse.
