Ok my son is 17 months old and sometimes when me and his dad and his grandpa clap our hands and say yay to have fun and be happy he bursts into tears. He does it alot more when his dad has him is it for attention bc everyone gives him attention alot and loves him even though me and his dad arent together he sparatically sees him so idk if that could be the issue but i hope my son doesnt turn into a very sensitive adult. hmmmm i just dont know

I have no idea, he's still a baby. I wouldn't read much into it.

Don't worry. Kids are good at reacting the opposite than you expect. At that age don't be surprised about. anything he does.

He's still a baby so that seems to be a normal thing. But why wouldn't you want him to be a sensitive adult? Just because it brushes against societal norms to be a sensitive male, doesn't make it a bad thing.

If its really affecting his life get him checked out for sensory processing disorder.

My son did that until he was 2 and at 16 some loud noises still bother him. His doc just said some people have sensitive hearing.

And my son is a sensitive young man and there's NOTHING wrong with it. It is ok for men to be sensitive.

 My son used to cry at any party where they sang happy birthday then clapped and yelled yay.  Without fail every time!  He eventually grew out of it but has other sensory issues so I believe that's why.

Both my boys are sensitive, my oldest more so than my youngest. My oldest and myself are both sensitive to loud noises.

DS has sensitive ears too and he used to cry when door were slammed or car doors.
