Can I just add that no matter what at age 3, 4, 5, 6+ you are going to have whining regardless of the parents ways of dealing with it vs. your way. They are being a kid, and it's normal. We may not like it but it's a part of parenthood. Every child is different. When either of my kids act out or have an overly whiny day I tell myself "They arent purposely giving ME a hard time, they are having a hard time coping with being a child". We all have bad days, and for a child that could show by acting out, being emotional or just whining.

As a mom the toughest ages has been 3s and 4s. It's hard because they struggle big time, and I dont say this to be mean but until you are a mother of that age it's hard to understand. I get that you are a nanny but being a mother 24/7 is completely different.

When he's having a whiny time, stop what your doing, give him a hug and just talk to him. See if there is something else bothering him. Take a minute to just talk to him.
