You can't say anything to her she crys you can't tell her no she cries. You can't even joke with her she cries. I thought it was depression since it runs in my side of the family all my real dads family is on medication including me for it. The doctor doesn't want to diagnose her with that yet so she said to spend more time with her, but it isn't working. She was crying earlier cause daddy was letting her play his ipod and the battery was about to die so he asked her to put it on the charger she started crying then she started crying a little bit ago cause she asked if she could have a juice pack I said yes. She wanted one for her, her sister and her cousin I said ok then she comes in crying I am like what is wrong now? She says there are only 2 left. I am getting so tired of the crying I can't take it anymore. How do I deal with this? She will be 6 and her sister just turned 3 and she lets her sister keep beating her up or even her 2.5 year old cousin. She will say Madison hit me or Jake hit me and cry about it then they do it again instead of her moving she just sits there and lets them do it and crys about it. Plus I have another baby due in Augest I can't take it anymore please help

Wow! I sympathize with you, it can get annoying, I am telling you, it is probably part of who she is. Try ignoring it and not even acknowledging it at all. Emphasize that being a cry baby is not a good thing, it is for babies and she is way too old for that.....and mom, sending you lots and lots of patience, you are going to need it. Hugs....

Just have a big conversation about what you expect, which is for her to cut the crap and tell her what you are gonna do
The next time she comes crying say, "Stop crying, and come back to tell me when you are not crying" Then walk away. Sending her to her room is not saying stop crying, in my opinion. I think it is saying I don't want to hear you at all. Just my opinion.
The success of this will be with your consistency.
