  • That makes sense. I think back to the times when my kids are honestly sad, and I was sad with them. It really hurts.

  • I know it sure can be true.

  • I think it depends on what the child is sad about. My son sometimes get sad about not getting something he wants, or getting his way in life , and usually in those cases I reply sometimes you can't always get what you want, but it's ok to feel sad or disapointed about it. Yet when he comes home crying he doesn't have any friends in school and things like that it makes me feel really sad for him, because I know how cruel kids can be.

  • I would say it is a very true statement!

  • I had to think on that, gosh I'm so out of it right now, LOL. But yes I do agree with it. My son is happy, I'm happy. He's sad, I'm sad.

  • I agree with ZLandAJsmommy. If my son were sad because he didn't get a toy he wanted from the store, I wouldn't be sad. I of course wouldn't want him to be sad, but I myself wouldn't be.
