: My mother just came to town for Thanksgiving and spoiled my son to the point that now when he sees something he wants, he screams until we give it to him. How do I get him back to being a good boy instead of being so whiney.
: Someone please help me. It has only been 3 days but he is driving me crazy.

: Thanks so much,
: Faith

My MIL does the same thing every time she visits too. My ds is 14 months and I find that when he whines and cries to get his way, I will calmly explain to him why he can't have that, get his way, etc (although he may not understand me) and walk away. It is no fun to have a temper tantrum without an audience.
