We're celebrating all of you hard-working moms with a giveaway from "This Thing Called Family" EVERY DAY this week!
SEVEN giveaways! One winner every day!
Today's giveaway is this piece of wall art designed by Green Girl Laura, from our new mom rules:
"Oh. My. Gosh. Whining is one of my biggest mothering pet peeves. I would love to hear how all you moms out there conquer (or are trying to conquer) this bad habit. My husband and I just decided one day that if there was any whining coming out of our children's mouth, we just completely ignored them. As in, not even acknowledging their existence. We even would go so far as to have conversations such as, "Honey, did you hear something?" "No dear. Not a thing". They quickly learned that there were ways to say what they wanted to say in a way that would have our full attention. I even entertain and listen to complaints if they are done in a polite and respectful manner. It was quite fun, especially when they were younger, to watch them work this out. Often times it would take them 2 or 3 attempts before they got it right. This is such an important thing to teach your children because we all know what's worse than a little whiner.....an adult whiner...and they're not as easy to ignore!!" - Laura
