My DD is 7 years old. Just like every child she has good days and bad days. Today when I picked her up, she got mad that I took her 3DS into the house to charge it. She had been playing on it this morning before school in the car. We get home and she gets upset that her little sister gets to play on the kindle while she and I do homework. Then she gets upset when I tell her we have to work on spelling words. Then she gets upset because she mis-spelled one word. When I say upset or mad, I mean she cries. Almost hysterically. I stay patient while she does so and I try to calm her down but sometimes I get fed up with all her crying. Today I just looked at her and said, "do you hear yourself?"
Is this normal behavior for a seven year old? Is she just spoiled? If its not normal behavior, what can I do to help her?
