Ryken is driving me crazy lately with the whining and 'needing' things. He's constantly needing something. He'll realizes he needs his orange monster truck and we have to find it NOW. He'll whine the entire time until we find it. Or when he goes to bed or naps he needs to have both his basketballs, puppy, soccer ball, orange monster truck, and blue monster truck. So we go searching around for all of these things before bed each night. Or while watching TV he will demand to watch something else. We have Netflix, so I can change it to what he wants but it gets old changing it and sometimes I can't understand what he wants and then he throws a fit. Same with wanting to eat. If he wants a snack he'll whine and whine.
Anyway, you get the point. I have been giving in to most things because I figured it's not that big of deal, but it seems to be getting out of control and he whines all day long. I've banned toys from the car because he would drop them and then expect me to pick them up (while driving!). Then when I tell him no he screams the rest of the car ride.
What do you give in to and when do you put your foot down? I think I need to find a happy medium.
