One way to think about it is that the whining isn't being reinforced really because it doesn't have any impact. You can't act faster, you are doing what you are doing. Actually changing your behavior (by not giving it to her for example) would actually be more reinforcing... just ignore her whining. Really ignore it. You understood her need, you are responding to her need. That is good parenting.
