No More Whining Timer
Three-Step Plan to Whine-Free Living!
1: Calmly ask your child if he is speaking with a self-controlled voice. “Sweetheart, are you talking in a self-controlled voice?”
2: Explain that it is love that motivates you to train him. “Honey, I love you too much to allow you to speak foolishly. I’m going to set the timer and when the buzzer goes off in three minutes, you may come back and talk the right way.”
3: Follow through. When the buzzer goes off, have the child come back and talk with a self-controlled voice.
