    Whining -- The Bridge Between Crying and Talking (and why it's a sign of maturity, not brattiness)

  • Janie G

    WHINING! Whining is, in fact, just an advanced form of crying and, as such, is just as grating on the nerves as crying because it is designed to get the attention of a caregiver. The difference is actually in our attitudes toward whining. We accept crying as a normal part of baby and toddlerhood, but label the whining of a preschooler ‘bratty’ and ‘spoiled’ and refuse to listen to them until they ‘use their normal voice’…just when they need us to listen the most!

Laundry sorted, dishes done | Snuggling my little one | Hands free to do my daily tasks | Even when “Hold you?” she asks | Off we go now to the store | Where naptime comes with gentle snore | As tucked against my heart she sleeps | Then, shopping done, I kiss soft cheeks | While waking eyes blink up at me | A smile curves contentedly | Across her tiny little face | She’s woken in her favorite place | Then down to toddle off she goes |‘Til small legs tire and she slows | Then back...
