My daughter is six years old, and is very sensative. She will cry over the littleest things. I dont even have to yell at her she cries. her feelings are easily hurt. She has been having trouble paying attention and staying on task. I was just wondering if anyone else has a child like this and if so do you have any advie.
Oh I have gotten her envolved in a program at school called closing the gap. It is going to help her with keeping her focus in school. I just at looking for the at home part........I am a bit lost.

Sometimes, kids feel things & they're not exactly sure why (adults do this too) it can really help if you take a little time to try to help break down their emotions & figure out the who/what/why their feelings are hurt. You'll notice by the end of your talk, she is no longer upset. It also helps them figure out there OWN emotions, & can help w/ problems in the future. Well, it helps with my daughter. Whatever you do, don't get irritated about her string emotions. Really, it's a beautiful thing to feel so strongly, to love, laugh, & cry so strong is beautiful. Don't make her hide how she feels, just help her explore her feelings. She will be able to sort them out herself if she can get a lil help figuring them out. Be patient, because if your not, she may feel like she is misunderstood & that's a terrible feeling for a child.

I'm sorry, but i don't think being emotional means your child has any kind of behavioral problems as to other moms have described. It means she has strong emotions.....people often take this as some sort of behavior problem & try to solve it w/ meds and psychologists. It's not necessary to do those things. If a parent can take extra time to talk to their child, figure out their brain better & help them figure out there emotions better psychologists are not necessary. Most parents don't choose to take the time it needs to have long talks w/ their children, it's very necessary. It helps the parent learn more about their children & vice versa.
