One of my twins has recently started getting extremely emotional, if I disipline her or raise my voice even slightly she will burst out crying. I ask her what is wrong and she tells me that she doesn't like it when I get mad at her. I explain that getting mad is also an emotion and I wish I could always be happy but sometimes she makes me upset because she doesn't listen. I feel like I am walking on eggshells with her being so emotional at the moment. I am sure this is just another developmental phase I am experiencing but it's tough as I don't want her to be a cry-baby for silly things. Disipline and the naughty chair never used to be a problem but now it's tears gallore. I hope this is just a short stage she is going through, have many other parents experienced this emotional stage, I have read that children at this age like to please their parents and friends constantly so anything negative can pull at their heart strings.
