I would really like someone to talk to regarding this issue. My 10 year old has been crying for 8 years. She cries at least 5 times a day and has cried well over 15 times a day at times. She cries over things that she doesn't know, doesn't want to do, or because she isn't put first. She is the oldest child and has been a horrible example for my other children. She will cry if the car door is not unlocked by the time she gets to it. She will cry because you ask her to get you something because she isn't sure where it is (at this point we have just asked and she hasn't even looked). She will cry if you call her...why?...because she doesn't know what you want. I could go on for days. This can't be hormones. I have had her in therapy, I have tried several different techniques and NOTHING is working. Life is stressful because of her behavior. The crying is the worst thing but recently she is starting to steal, she lies all the time, and she creates a toxic environment for us. Please help. Anyone.
