does it break your heart to see your child cry? expecially when you cant do anything to help. I cant stand to see my daughter cry and usually when I try to talk to her it just makes it worse.

I've always been like that with kids....especially mine. And my two are 16 and 18 years old! I always have, and always will, do whatever I can to stop the tears as soon as possible.

My daughter is the 18 year old and my son is the 16 year old...but STILL a lot of drama any way. Especially when my son is aggravating my daughter in any way he possibly can. LOL

It really is heartbreaking to see your child cry. But hold yourself. If she is just throwing one of her tantrums, don't give in so easily. That will just make matters worse. But If the child is in pain, that's the time that you must attend to her and encourage her to open up.

My heart breaks into little pieces when I see my son cry especially when there is nothing I can do about it. I try to make him feel better the best I can.

Yes it does especially when they're hurt or when they're not well. But there are times that they're are crying because they just having tantrums. The best way to deal it is to right away remove them from the situation and divert there attention. But it does it does hurt if they keep crying and it makes them stress all the more.

crying child - it is very normal for kids to cry every so often when they don't find things satisfactory to them. I don't blame them
Hello ladybug. I think that it is heartbreaking to see my child crying, who cried a lot when he was before ten. But it is good that he seldom cries now as he is in his teen. I remember when he was crying and when I went over to comfort him, he cried ever harder, which made the matter worse. So I find that the better way is to leave him alone and he will soon get better.

I don't know how old your daughter is, but when mine one time had a broken heart and was crying, all I could do was to hold her, I felt so bad and wanted to kick someones but too..I didn't say that though, it would only have made things worse..

I hate to see anyone cry, I always cry as well but it is especially hard to see kids cry, so it must be even harder to have to watch your child cry and not be able to help them..
