Laugh it off as much as you can. Kids are hilarious in every stage, whether whining to get out of the car at age 3, or whining to get in it at age 16. Look for the humor in every situation, rather than defaulting to anger or lectures. Not only will your kids learn how to follow your lead and live life lightheartedly, but your days will be filled with a lot more laughter along the way.
