I can't take it any longer!  Landon's general tone of voice these days is a whine.  Followed by a tantrum. Often combined with throwing himself on the ground.  Over every.single.thing.  I'm going nuttso!  Any tips for stopping the whining?  I've tried ignoring, time outs, rewards, etc.  Nothing seems to help.  I'd love to hear your thoughts. :)

Ugh, Heidi. I'm sorry you are dealing with this too! I never thought about the weather being an issue. Could be? How did the rest of your day go? Did he end up being able to go to the party?

Oh I am hping my 4 year old recent behavior is weather related. Im done with him. The whinning, the not listening, the talking back. Yesterday DH and I were home and he was horrible. Sent him to his room. You would think having to go upstair in the sauna (we only use ac up there at night) would make him NOT want to be sent up again but NO. Right now he knows he HAS to behave or he won't get to go to his brothers bday party so we will see...
