    I think he needs to find the cause of the whine.

    Important thing to remember thou is that the 5yr old is excatly that, 5.

    5 yr olds whine.

    What seems to work with my dd is when she starts, we get down to her level, get her to stop and explain why it isn't necessary and explain the situation, and explain the solution our offer an alternative.. Whether it's because we can't do something that instance, our why she can't play jumping near her brothers room, if we can tell her why she can't do it but that she can do x instead, or do it later, it seems to calm her down and stops the whining...

    My DD is 5 and whines alot when she is bored. I find her something to do, whether it be playing a game, craft, cooking etc. It works most of the time.

    Don't ignore it respond with I'm sorry I can't hear whining, you'll need to use your big girl voice she knows you've heard her and you've given her the appropriate way to get what she would like. If you just ignore her you're not really teaching her that. She just learns she's not being heard isn't having her needs met and will probably get more whiny and clingy/ upset as a result. Children need to feel heard it's very important we used this method with my children and it worked so well <3

    Argh! Whining 5 year olds drive me bonkers! It's really 'normal' - but REALLY irritating. I think part of me feels like they should know better so they should stop acting like toddlers. But 4-5 year olds are still little I guess.

    They can just put on the most irritating voice until they get their way - or if they don't get their way, until they find something better to do than whine.

    I've got no advice - just sympathy. Give me a screaming baby over a whining child any day! (sorry been awake since 3am with a toddler - who's been an absolute adorable and affection angel, he just won't sleep, so I'm a little edgy!)
