  • Yeah sometimes. If there is a reason for it, I totally get it. But if you're crying just to act an ass, nope, not my favorite thing.

  • No. I try not to add more drama too the situation - if that makes sense.

    My son can get upset if I take something away from him and have a goood cry. Instead of getting mad I just sit and be there for him until hes gotten over it. Think its good for him to get it out and afterwards he gives me a hug and moves on and plays.

  • It depends. My son has developed a bad habit of crying to make people feel sorry for him. The other day I told him he couldn't have another piece of cake at the family gathering. He started crying and my mother in law laid into me about it. He didn't get his cake, he got to leave the party with me. He is 7. When he is hurt or sad or scared, no I am not mad when he cries. My daughter, 15 months, will cry in an effort to communicate still so I can't get mad there.

  • When they are babies? Um, no. I don't get mad. I do get frustrated, though. Why would you get mad? They don't do this to piss you off. But it can be extremely frustrating and tiring!

  • My 10 month old cries when she can't get her's very annoying, but I tune it out. When she sees that I won't give in to her tears, she'll stop
