Long ago I learned this line in a parenting workshop. I felt a little bit like a drill sergeant when I used it on my kids initially, but now it works like a charm!
Try it – you’ll love it. It’s such an easy way to correct your child without having to sound like a broken record. I started when they were 2 and still use it now (on my 9 year old).

Whining! There is just something about a whine that can bring a parent to her knees! Is it the tone, the meaning, the drama? All of the above!!
My husband came up with this one:
Brilliant! We used it this weekend for fun and got some giggles. I hope that if I just say “Nothing’s finer” that will stop the whine cycle in it’s place. If it doesn’t the phrase will serve as a warning and the next time they’ll have to bring me a quarter.
What tricks do you use?
