All 5 of my kids have "drama" personalitity types. I've noticed that little things cause them big upset and they seem to over react to things.
For example, I had a child whine and act as if the end of the world was happening because her band-aid fell off. She could have just calmly asked for a new one, but instead got very upset.
It's little things, like a misplaced shoe, dropped a spoon on the floor, a cup of water knock over, anything, no matter how small gets whinned about, cried about and OMG the sky is falling.
I thought it was me and tried very hard to watch myself. Talked to my mom, she claims I was a very calm, very quiet child? What gives.
Then I relized that my dh has the same "it's the end of the world" trait.
I think I'm dealing with an inborn trait. Still, is there a way I can get them to relax and not whine or cry so much over little things? Can I fix it?
