I wanted him to continue, but my husband did not. I am the tough love parent and I want to teach him how to handle things better. In swim class, he has gotten upset and shut down a few times. One reason was his teacher used a another child to show my son how to do something. Amother time, she allowed the child to swim nefore my son.
Today at soccer, he cried theee times: twice when a child got the ball past him to score and once when I told him to run straight so that he did not trip one of the other child during a race. I am not sure how to handle this. To be honest, it is a little embarrassing, especially when he is the only one doing it. Have you had any luck with a shift? Our situation seems really similar to yours.

My son just turned We recently moved to a new area and he is attending a new school. In a nutshell, despite all the attention he has gotten both at home and at school, he still cries at school every single day. We meaning me at home and staff and teacher at school have talked with him repeatedly, he's been taught numerous techniques for calming himself down, and he knows l am there to pick him up after school every day. He says he misses me during the day, but this never happened at his old school. He has been attending this school for almost two months, and l had hoped we would see better adjustment by now, but l feel like it's just not happening.
He has made a couple of friends, and every day l point out lots of positives that he can focus on, but more often than not he is already crying before he even gets in the classroom each morning. He cries throughout the day as well, sometimes for a reason that isn't clear to anyone.
What NOT to do When Your Child is Crying
I am trying hard not to lose it and just tell him to knock it off and get over it already, but l want to sometimes! Any suggestions would be appreciated!

We are at our wit's end. Our son will be 9 next week. He is smart, funny, and tender-hearted. He is fine to play by himself but he does have some friends. He was diagnosed ADHD in Since being put on a low dose med, he is able to have some focus at school when before he couldn't get through writing his name without being distracted. His emotions, however, are out of control. He cries every day at school, sometimes more than once. Sometimes it's out of frustration, sometimes he says he misses me, and sometimes it's just because he "had a sad thought. His crying can easily go into a full-on bawling, which causes disruptions in the classroom.
He's been asked to step out of class and reset, he's been talked to, he's even been sent to the office. He started 4th grade today and I know this is affecting how other kids respond to him. It isn't good or healthy for a child, especially this age, to cry every day at school. We don't know what to do. We've talked about coping mechanisms but that hasn't helped.
We've tried coddling, tough love, even honesty about the effect it will have on him when it comes to other kids. Still, nothing. We're considering taking him to a counselor to see if a professional can assist because I don't know what more we can do to help him get a grip on his emotions and learn age-appropriate responses. Have any of you gone that route? Or have you found anything else that works?

More than 40 percent of the children who died of abuse and neglect in the last six years in Colorado had families or caregivers known to child protection workers who could have saved them.
Those 72 children — many beaten, starved, suffocated or burned — died despite warnings from relatives, neighbors, teachers and strangers, or even the baby monitor recording of blatant abuse sent to caseworkers.
Many of their deaths were not only preventable, they were foretold. It happens, on average, every 30 days. A Denver Post and 9News investigation of the Colorado child welfare system revealed a pattern of disturbing failures in which warnings were ignored, cases closed without even a visit and children given to foster parents who killed them.
A Child's Cry
Caseworkers and their supervisors failed to complete investigations in the time required by law 18 times before children ended up dead. They routinely — at least 31 times — did not contact neighbors and acquaintances who might have told them a child was at risk of harm or even death. More than half of the time, caseworkers violated at least one state rule when conducting abuse investigations, according to an analysis of fatality case reviews by the state Department of Human Services.
The system is plagued by a lack of accountability and transparency — every county in Colorado decides how to run its own child protection department, with minimal input from the state. It is so disjointed, state officials cannot pinpoint the average workload of caseworkers, and cannot fire or discipline a county employee.
Crying, Age 3 and Younger
More kids have died of abuse and neglect in this state in the last five years than in the five years before that, and an increasing number of those children were known to child welfare workers before they were killed. This is despite the highly publicized starving death of 7-year-old Chandler Grafner in that galvanized attention on the child welfare system. Alize Vick , the girl across the street, died five months later, in October , after her foster mother hurled her five feet, head-first into a coffee table.
A caseworker said she listened to the recording and visited the home. The allegations piled up. Not the reports of guns and fighting. Not the claims that her father threatened to throw her mother in the trash and that he threatened to kill her. Her brother was covered in feces, acted much younger than his age, and he sometimes pretended to slam his head into a wall and said his stepfather hurt him. He told people at school he might get cocaine under the Christmas tree.
