Whining tends to peak between two to four years of age, which means as a toddler parent you are bound to hear it several times a day. Is there a solution for whining? Quite possibly and it doesn’t involve spending a fortune on noise-canceling headphones.


The short answer is yes. While we are big proponents of teaching our kids about their emotions and giving them tools to effectively self-regulate, diet plays a big role in children's behavior. 


Human brains develop back to front, with a more complex understanding of directions only appearing in a child after turning 4 years old. 

Accepting this reality doesn't mean there's nothing we can do. It also means that a lot of traditional methods (punishments, time-outs, taking out toys, over-lecturing) really don't work
