Hey Everybody,

I have a special shirt that I wear just for traveling home from a weekend conference. It's especially comfortable after being in my "dress-up" clothes for several days. It's just a brown T-shirt, but it has a great message: NO WHINING!

Now, if you're going to wear a shirt like that, that means you better be ready to take it seriously! But when everyone is feeling tired and cranky and ready to be home, my T-shirt is a great reminder for our family that whining is an issue of self-control, no matter how old or young you are!

Whining can be a serious problem for young families. If you've heard your share of whining, then you know what I mean! That nasally tone accompanied by a sense of childish urgency can send a mom running in the other direction! Your best line of discipline, however, is in helping your child understand that whining is an issue of self-control. My friend Ginger Plowman has come up with an absolutely inspired solution: a No More Whining kit for families. It includes a parent's manual, a children's book, and a No More Whining watch! I'd love for you to check it out at my website and get all the details! A whiny two-year-old quickly becomes a whiny ten-year-old, and you can only blame it on teething for so long! :)

Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless
and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in
which you shine like stars in the universe. . . (Philippians 2: 14-15)
