Stop the Whining!

Do you find mealtime with the kids stressful? Not to worry – it can be hard to coordinate cooking, preparing the table, and getting the children to settle down. I completely understand! Dinnertime should be enjoyable, not a chaotic mess, so here I share my parenting tips to stop whining at the dinner table.

Thanks to this lovely family I’m working with, I’m able to show you an example of what to do and what to avoid. The major problem I see with many families is that the parent is engaging with their whining child. Do NOT give in and engage this type of behavior.

If they want to behave like animals, they can go in another room. Don’t let them sit there and spoil the meal for everyone.
