I was confused and needed to handle my self and then i started whistling.

Five-year-old Nikki — overcome by wet, mushy earth — began throwing weeds in the air, dancing, laughing and shrieking while her father, Martin E.P. Seligman, Ph.D, former president of the American Psychological Association, was trying to garden. Seligman yelled at her to be quiet. She walked away, head down — only to return heroically a moment later: “Daddy, I want to talk to you,” she said. “You may not have noticed, but I used to be a whiner. I whined every day from the time I was 3 until the time I was 5. And, you know, Daddy, on my fifth birthday, I decided I wasn’t going to whine anymore. And that was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and I haven’t whined since. And if I can stop whining, Daddy, you can stop being so grumpy.”
