Our 6 year old daughter seems to complain a lot even when we ask her to do the littlest thing or even when it seems like something good is happening - like an unexpected ice cream treat - she might complain about the flavor. Should we just ignore her complaining and hope if we don't give it attention it will go away?

How do you suggest empowering your teen to look within for happiness instead of feeling like a loser because she broke up with her boyfriend and her best friends are traveling and she feels all alone and unpopular.

My 11 year old seems to choose unrealistic - even impossible - goals or at least seems to set himself up to fail. Should I try to get him to readjust his sites, I hate to see him disappointed or ready to give up when he doesn't make a goal?

I know siblings argue and I know my kids love each other but how do I get them to speak kindly to each other rather than always being mean to each other. I feel I am always on them about their tone with each other and the constant arguing. I feel like I am not changing the behavior. Any suggestions? Thanks.

We've had conversations about needing to complete things that we don't feel passionate about and that it's still possible to take pride in the work even if it's not exciting. But I wonder if that is my adult construct that I'm trying to impose? Any thoughts would be helpful.

My young daughter has very strong preferences about what she likes and doesn't like. She's not obsessive and her "hot" preferences change often but she voices her opinions and preferences for every activity. Are we spoiling her or letting her be too picky when we let her have her preferences?
