toddler tantrum anymore, but something a bit more nerve-wracking has taken its place. The Whine! It is a refinement on the throw-on-the-floor tantrum!
Especially the evening whine! The worst of the worst kind of psychological manipulation.
“Anything, please tell us what you want! We will give it to you! Just stop the whining! Anything!” (Yes, sometimes we do!)
The Toddler is tired! She knows what she wants!
This! No, this! No matter what! Nothing is quite to her wants or specifications! And when something falls on the floor, it is total whine-mode! (I have even seen her drop the stuff on purpose... What's up with that?) Even if we tell her to just pick it up...
She does not let up!
It does not help when we are as tired as she is...
It is not the screeching tantrum that Lisa at Lady RubyRay is talking about, but it is relentless...
Please send a whole bucket of patience!
What do you do with the whine?
