22 mo addicted to attention


Is there anything that can be done about a 22 month old's incessant whining? This started less than a week ago. Basically she wanders around whining about 90% of the time unless she is being actively played with or read to. She even whines while eating! My parents just relocated here and moved in with us on a short term basis while looking to buy a house; we are theorizing that we're paying too much attention to her but with 4 adults in the house it's difficult for someone not to play with her often during the day. Is this a typical phase? I don't want to always "give in" and pay attention to her in some way just to get her to stop; I'm afraid I'll make it worse! Also, I have things to do!
