There are four reasons why babies cry...1) they are hungry...2) they are wet 3) they want to be held 4) they don't know why they are crying and want you to figure it out.

Talk to a crying child to find out what is wrong. use a soothing tone of voice and chances are, he will stop crying. It calms a kid when he knows someone is listening to him. The worse thing you could do are to ignore them or get mad at them. They need attention, that is why they cry. While we may not give them what they are demanding for (if the crying is a prelude to a tantrum), it is still imprtant to talk to them logically, in a soothing manner.

It depends, if I was the one with the child then he/she cries I kinda get nervous and panic-ky, cause I am afraid of cry babies, they might tell the parents I made them cry. In some situations, crying kids are so helpless and I can't help but feel pity for them, but there are also those that cry more like whining and hitting tantrums which gets really annoying if they won't stop after you tell them to for a million times.. ahaha

Well it depends on why they are crying. Sometimes they cry because they don't feel good, and they don't know how to let us know. other times it is out of frustration, and or not knowing how to deal with their emotions. that is the only way they can express themselves.
