My 4 year old has become VERY emotional and sensitive. If he's coloring a picture, he will start crying and gets very distraught and says that his picture is ugly and that he's not good at it. I tell him it's beautiful and try to give him words of encouragement but it doesn't help. Another example is a few days ago he said a bad word (and he didn't know it was bad) so I just explained to him that it wasn't a nice thing to say and that he shouldn't say it anymore. I didn't yell or raise my voice or anything, and he still got really upset and started telling me I am a mean person. He went in his room and didn't come out for over an hour. Is this normal? And what do I say or do to make him feel better?? I try my best, but he still stays really upset about things...
