See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I need advice and opinions on what to do when a child cries over everything. My 4 yr old SD cries a lot. If you tell her no to something she wants or if you tell her if you do this you will be put in time out then she does it and you put her in time out she cries. If you talk to her in a tone she cries. Honestly it irritates me that she cries so easily. My other children are boys and I also went through this with one of them. He is just now growing out of it I think but he is 8. Is it just something that kids do and will grow out of? Or is it the same as pitching a fit because you are not getting what you want?
I don't want to be ugly or anything but I don't know how to get them to understand that just because you cry doesn't mean that I will give in and give you what you want or it will not save you from punishment if you were told not to do something and you chose to do it anyway. Am I supposed to just let them cry and they will eventually stop? I need advice or to know how other moms handle this....
