We have a whiner at our house.
We will protect the guilty and not name names.
We have been working on the behavior
I had heard a broadcast on Family Life a while back about a "No Whine Watch" and we feel that we are at the point of needing some extra help, so off to Family Life's website I went to order this new gadget...
I had to laugh when I saw it...bright yellow with the "No Whine" logo engraved on it. I wondered for a moment if making the child wear this would be more scarring than being known as a whiner?? I think we will limit the wearing of this watch to home.
But order it, I did.
...along with the parenting manual about helping whiny children (surely, it is not our parenting??).
Truth be told, some days I should have this loud, yellow watch on my wrist as a reminder to stop my whining...
I suppose I will learn a thing or two as I teach this child about whining. Parenting is so good for me!
