So choose to play with those more challenging toys when your toddler is happy, fed, and refreshed from a nap or a good night of sleep. 1 When the whining starts, gently transition to an activity that’s calming, like reading a story together or playing outside. One of the first and easiest things you can do to respond to a baby’s whining is check their diaper. You’ll know right away if that’s the source of their distress. Boredom. Lansbury reminds that if your children are looking for you, you don’t need to answer your them right away.
Instead of responding with, “I’m here,” try saying, “Oh, I’m over here actually.” Remember that you are the parent. Take on a leadership role and let some of the demands and “Mommys” pass by. Whenever your child speaks in a whiny voice say with a smile (to convey you are not angry), “I’m sorry but your voice is whiny and my ears don’t work. So often we hear whining and judge our child’s behavior (as spoiled or demanding).
But the way we see a behavior shapes how we respond to it. The truth is that whining is completely normal for toddlers. Knowing this behavior is normal, we can respond from a place of compassion instead of from a place of anger and frustration. Apply a little Zen discipline here and stay calm when your child begins whining.
1 Remember when your child was little and she fell, and then would watch for your reaction to decide how upset she should be? The same principle applies here. Explain: “People don’t like hearing the ‘whiny’ voice.
It hurts their ears, and makes them think you’re not a big boy.” Stay calm. Don’t snap, “Stop that whining!” and don’t label him a “whiner.” To a toddler, negative attention is better than no attention and labels have a way of becoming self-fulfilling prophecies (and you certainly don’t want that!). Welcoming a new baby into the family can really rock a toddler’s world! In the past, I have written several posts about how to prepare your toddler for a new sibling before the baby is born. Today, I’m sharing 8 ways to make the transition as smooth as possible after the baby has already arrived.
Pick a quiet time and tell your child that there’s a new rule: If he whines, you won’t respond. “From then on, whenever he whines, keep your facial expression absolutely neutral,” Borba says. Toddlers let off stress by simply having a meltdown, but as they get older they gain more self-control, and begin to whine instead. Be kind in response to his whining until you get home and have a few minutes to spend with him. Then draw him onto your lap, look him in the eye and say “I notice you were feeling so whiny and sad, Sweetie.
