Teaching Manners to a Five-Year-Old


During a recent visit to a private school we are considering sending our daughter to, I found it difficult to have a conversation with the school staff due to my daughter's constant whining and "noise-making." I have found this to be an issue with many one-on-one conversations I try to have. She is five years old and an only child. I am a homemaker, so we spend a lot of time together daily. When my attention is directed at someone else, she is constantly attempting to get my full attention and will whine, talk, interrupt, and even move in disruptive ways. How can I teach her to be calm (verbally and physically) until I am finished with my conversations?
