What to do with nagging kids?

Dr. Heitler was quoted today in “SheKnows Parenting” talking about overly persistent kids.  Here’s a section of the article:

Someday, your child’s persistence may be one of her best attributes, but right now, she could be using it against you. “Repetition plus volume wear many parents down,” says Susan Heitler, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist and author of David Decides About Thumbsucking and The Power of Two. How do you resist? Heitler recommends “learning collaborative conflict resolution skills. If your kids, and you, have confidence that you can generally find win-win solutions, standing firm on occasional authority-based decisions becomes far easier.”
