Most parents will agree that whining is one of the most annoying sounds that toddlers and children can produce, and finding an effective strategy to stop it can prove difficult. Experts agree that finding out why kids are whining and developing positive tactics to stop it happening can improve the parent/child relationship.

As whining is an expression of need or frustration in a young child, it is important to realize that although it may be annoying, it is also a normal part of development and as the child grows and is able to express his needs verbally, the whining will disappear. Until then, here are some strategies to help combat the problem.

1. Find out what might be triggering the behavior. It may be hunger, feeling tired or a need for attention. Problems at home or school, a new sibling or even changes to the daily routine may have upset the child and created the need to whine. Try some one-to-one time, reading, riding bikes or just hanging out together.

2. Mimic the whining to the child. Try not to mock or make fun of the child but do point out what the whining sounds like. The child may not realize how awful it sounds.

3. Make it clear that whining is not acceptable and will not bring positive results. Do not give in, but stress that needs communicated in a normal tone of voice will be considered.

4. Most importantly, be consistent with no whining rules and reward positive behavior.
