it is hard but I had nephews that never did this. The time out method supernanny method helped greatly.
I also have a daughter and the super nanny technique worked too. The most we have had to use it is 6 times in the last 3 yrs. We began at aged 2yrs.
We used a time out mat in the room but out of view of the TV it works wonders.
You could try that, if you don't want to buy the book I can tell you the method if that's something you want to try.
4yr olds love to test the water to see how far they can push you to see if you will crumble and give in. Is there any other things that you have given in to?? He might see whineing as a way to get you to crumble to this too.
Just trying to cover all bases.
Pregnant for the first-time?
