My son cries easily...


My son is 6 years old. He cries easily if he has been found to be doing something he shouldn't do. He doesn't cry in front of me because I caught him very often. Problem is when his dad, sister or other family members caught him red handed, he cries easily and crouch over like a ostrich bury his head in a hole...This could go on for 30min !!

    thanks, my friend. Very good advice. I let him cry and then ask him why later when he is in good mood. Yeah, i explain to him that he shouldn't act that way and it's ok to be caught red handed. Just repent. Takes time and patience.

    Halle, what if the child is defensive? People, including kids, don't like to admit that they have made a mistake, right? How about saying: "EVEN IF you make a mistake, you are still Mummy's child, and Mummy loves you."

    i think he feels that he has lost his pride, embarrassed. My son doesn't like to make mistakes. When he does, he cries, vent anger to himself. Very often. Even though I didn't scold or reprimand him.
