My daughter is 9 1/2 and highly sensitive. I don't just mean emotionally (check out hsperson.com) We've been aware of this since she was little and have tried to not only accomodate what she can't help but also aide her in her ability to cope and handle things. However, her emotional roller coaster has seemed to increase. I don't know if it's her age, the onset of puberty, or what but she cries over the smallest and stupidest things. I don't know how to get her to understand that she makes a small situation HUGE by her incesent over-reacting. How can I help her get a grip??? Her episodes drive her father and I crazy which just makes things worse, of course, and I am trying to stay calm and be patient there is no rationalizing with her during those moments and she just cries more when I ask her to go to her room to cry. Ugh. These episodes are really putting a damper on things and I just want to help her!!
