I am a single mom with only one son who will be 10 the end of July. His father lives close and is involved in his life. My son is doing fantastic in school and is a natural sportsman and is very good in both. My concern is that he is very hard on himself and he seems overly emotional. He cries at school if he does not understand something and he cries during sports if he doesn't "make the hit." I am wondering if it is normal for a boy his age to be this emotional or if there is something wrong with him. I don't remember taking life so seriously at such a young age...
