Nothing good comes from whining yet from time to time, I have seen my daughter, my nephews and nieces, as well as all my friends’ children complain until the cows come home.
Was moaning and groaning successful for these kids? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I admit that as much as I try to toe the hardline, there are day I’m too tired to fight my daughter’s whining and just say, “Alright already.” But it’s a slippery slope and one I’m working hard to avoid sliding down. Because the fact is: if your kid is a whining, moaning, complaining mess there is only one person to thank for that — and it’s not genetics or your in-laws.
It’s My Party & I’ll Cry If I Want To? No Thanks,
