My 3 year old son is like me, he's is HIGHLY sensitive. If he does something he knows is wrong (such as hit his older brother) once I tell him it's not nice he'll start to cry. If I yell at him he'll start to cry; if he trips (and doesn't hurt himself) he'll run to me crying about how he hurts, but will walk away as soon as I look him over and tell him he's okay. He is sooooo sensitive and it's so frustrating sometimes, but I know I was the same way and didn't get the nurturing I needed as a young child so I generally have the patience to deal with him. Anyone else have a child like this?
