my son cries.........ALOT. and about anything and everything. for example, he was doing homework and i pointed out that his writing is messy (which it is and his teacher can't read it) so he went in his room and cried over it. Then when he put the dishes away, he put the bowls in the wrong place and when my husband corrected him, he started bawling.
he also does this at school. my main reason for asking b/c now the other kids are picking on him for crying over things like he didn't get the snack he wanted or he wanted to sit by someone else.
i need to fix this before his self esteem is completly gone.

My son is now nine and we are just starting to grow out of that stage. It's a transition from little boy to big boy and it isn't easy on them. Be patient with him and just talk to him calmly about it.
