When did crying become an ailment?

I've been seeing this more and more. Geez, I mean, there are times I feel like crying and throwing a fit too. It's a fact of life. Let the kid cry. For even more fun times, video it and show it to him.

  • If crying is an ailment we got issues here. I can't go an hour without hearing crying here.

  • Don't you know now that it's abuse if you film your child crying? Or maybe it's only if you're mimicking your child crying. Who knows.

    Also, there's NO crying in baseball. Known fact.

  • hell my grown children cry, we have tear duct for a reason, it an emotion
    my LO cried the better part of today because she was tired but wanted to play then didn't want to play. I kissed her , said sorry you are out of sorts and let her cry.

  • My kids cry. Sometimes it's because of me. Sometimes they do it to each other. They need to get their emotions out. No good will come of me at their beck and call because I can't stand the thought of displeasure. They need to cope with life.

  • I hear crying everyday- it's quite normal for children to express emotions. They laugh loud and cry hard.

  • A crying child in the hospital is actually a great thing for several reasons... 1) it pops open those alveoli thus allowing more oxygen to the body.... and 2) if a child is crying that means they have some fight left in their bodies...
