Can you explain this more? How is something like whining acceptable?
Yes, please. Just yesterday I had to tell my 12 yo to go outside and take a walk to cool off. He was out of control and not listening, and I sent him upstairs, and he went up, pounding on the walls and doors (he's old enough to cause holes). I sent him out to walk and cool off.
