I just say “could you try again in your usual voice? I want to understand you.” I may need to say it two or three times once in a while, but I’ve found that staying totally calm and waiting to hear them out reduces whining over time. It comes up mostly when they feel unheard, in my opinion, but can certainly become more of a habit when it isnt addressed specifically.
