The broken record is whining

Okay, here's another one. Lyla is a total broken record these days. For instance, she will start saying something and just repeat it NON STOP. Not only does she repeat it, most of the time it's done in whine. It makes me wanna go postal!! For example, Kole just woke up and we were in the bedroom changing his diaper and Lyla was in the closet and pulled his shirt from yesterday out of the dirty laundry and then brought it to me whining. "Baby shirt" "Baby shirt" "Baby shirt" "Babyyy shiiiiirt!" "Babyyy shiiiiirt!" "Babyyy shiiiiirt!" "Babyyy shiiiiirt!" and on and on. It's the same when she asks for something, if the answer is no it just gets more whiny but keeps getting repeated.

N does that when he is tired. We are having some sleep adjustment issues because of his not wanting to nap during the day.. any ways when it comes to to the time of day where he should be sleeping he does that too... over and over...

lol, I was googling earlier to see if there is any way to stop the whining. Unfortunately saying "just shut up" doesn't work Smile

Tobey also cries with his whining. So it's not just talking whining it's fake crying whining. Some days I just want to lock him in a cupboard Lol (today was one of those day.)

He also does it when he's tired, and has decided that he also doesn't want to nap unless he really has to but by about 3pm he's over tired and the whining starts.

I tell the kids I can't understand them when they're whining. They have to ask in a normal voice or they don't get it. This is another thing they don't grow out of quickly.

I do that too. It hasn't had an impact so far. It makes me feel like I've stuck my finger in a light socket when she does that.

Yes, we do that too. I will also just say "Wow, I really don't like that whining. I'll wait until you can be calm and nice." and then do my best to ignore her. But it is still SUUUUPER annoying while you wait!

We do this too.

I find that if I repeat the word they are saying sometimes it makes them stop.

Whining would require talking. Ha ha. He'll sometimes whine in toddlerese, but I just tell him that he needs to use his words or sign for me. When I worked school age daycare I often said the phrases "use your words please" and "I'll help you as soon as you choose to talk where I can understand you." They picked up really quickly that whining doesn't lead anywhere. Sadly they don't always have that comprehension at this age!
