Breaking News

A new study published in the Journal of Social, Evolutionary and Cultural Psychology has found that whining is the most annoying sound in the world. 


This is ground-breaking information. How much time and money was spent on that study?

This information has been known to mothers since the very first toddler was placed in time-out in the cave for clubbing his sister, but I suppose its nice to finally have proof.

Breaking News: The Sky is Blue and Whining is Annoying

PS. Should the need arise to extend or further this study, please contact me as I would like to volunteer my children. Thank you.


  1. We used to tell the girls we didn't understand them when they whined. They'd say whatever they were saying to us again in a nice, clear voice and we'd say, "Oh... you wanted such and such. Okay." They learned very quickly to not speak in whine. YEARS later they finally figured out that we actually could understand them, just chose not to!

  2. We have just started the whining portion of life at 19 mos. It is killing me already. I am following from the Blog Hop!

  3. I just realized when I saw your name that you commented on my blog the other day! Thanks and sorry I am not with the program (ever).
