How to Tame the Whining

Question

My 5-year-old has regressed with his whining. His baby brother is going through his terrible 2’s, and I’m not sure if he’s trying to copy that behavior. I am presently trying to send him to his room when he cannot get his whining under control. I’ve stripped the room of every toy & book and plan on sending him to his room every day he whines until he can get back to where he was. Is this a good plan? Too excessive? Any other thoughts? If sending him to his room is a good idea, how should I handle it when he yells downstairs trying to engage in conversation? I’ve told him he has to deal with the consequence of the whining and that includes not conversing. I’ve also told him that if he continues to yell downstairs that he will spend the next day in his room as well.
