Missouri City Preschool child care: Fail-proof tips to deal with your toddler’s whining habits

Posted on 01-15-2015 | Rustom Khosravian


Raising a preschooler to become a successful adult certainly can be challenging at times. Every parent knows the joy of raising a healthy and successful child far exceeds any difficulties endured throughout their child care journey. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Sienna Plantation in Missouri Citywill share insight with you on how you can promote good behavior, and learn how to avoid inappropriate behavior.

Identifying root causes of potential problems

Adults take for granted the filters that they have developed during their lives. These filters are created by the brain to help reduce an overload of stimuli. For example, the overwhelming light from fluorescent tubes, the plethora of loud noises, and even the sound of cars driving along the road while we sleep. Filters assist us in ignoring things that aren’t important. However, your child may not have developed these filters yet. Try to determine from your child’s perspective, and identify precisely what is making him or her unhappy.

Accommodating bad behavior

Many parents make the mistake of accommodating inappropriate behavior. To help your child understand healthy social behavior, do not condone any forms of tantrums, loud and incessant whining or other actions considered rude or annoying, especially in public. The underlying problem is that this behavior is a cry for attention. Console the child, but teach him or her that these actions will not draw your attention. Be strict, firm, and above all, be consistent. Try understanding your child, and teaching him or her the right way to express needs and wants.

We offer an AdvancED™ accredited program that caters to each child as a unique individual, with unique needs, and particular likes and dislikes. This allows us to effectively teach each child, and assist each one in how to reach success. Contact us today to hear more about our advanced child care services.
