I put “crying” in quotes because lately Noah turns on the fake, loud whining whenever he doesn’t get his way. Yesterday, this was the case when he wanted my attention and I had to change his brother’s diaper. I told him no more crying. If he was going to cry, I said he would have to leave the room. I thought that would stop the tears, and it did, for a moment. Just long enough for him to walk out the door, stand in the hallway, and the “crying” commenced. NOT what I expected!
