My oldest son was our only until he was 5. He has always been one that when he gets the least bit of pain (a fall on his knee or stubbed toed) he throws his head back, wails loudly and cries forever. Now he's taken to hiding under the bed or in the closet to cry when he's in trouble. He is still extremely dramatic when he gets hurt even though he's over it in a minute. Now he's saying things like "I just feel like the dumbest kid in the world" or saying he wishes he wasn't even alive.
I have NEVER beaten my children, nor has my husband or any family members. I have and would NEVER tell him I didn't want him in my life and I've tried talking to him about what makes him feel this way and trying to correct it. He doesn't focus in school or at home but his docs say he does not have ADD/ADHD or have any problems.
Is there anything at all I can do for him?

Next question overall
If you have had two babies, did the second baby drop later than the first?
