I have an eight year old daughter . She loves me a lot . She would do whatever I say . But she is also sacred of me and is over sensitive. If she comes to know that she has made a mistake she would tell me about what she has done but before that she would start crying and wants me to assure her that I won say anything. .she cries over small petty things. How do I help her overcome this phobia of mum getting angry

My daughter was the same way when she was younger. I agree that finding ways to point out what she's doing well is helpful. I also just changed how I was responding to her. She has also come to realize that I seem really mad about stuff sometimes, but I'm over it so quickly that it's nothing to worry about. She's 13 now, and we don't really have those problems anymore.

Thanks sheyna
Would try the same . And I have been telling her a lot may be when she was really young I have done something that she can't forget but now I am really polite with her and trying to tell her her that she is free to do whatever she likes not crossing the limits but I think she has limited herself so tight that she can't come out of that. I really feel sorry for this condition but I do want her to be childish not that mature that she is always worried . Thanks for your suggestion . I will keep in touch and post how she is going
Thanks

My five year old daughter does something similar to this. The thing that I am working on is my reaction when she does things that I don't like or approve of. And I have to remember that it might seem like she is crying about something small but her world is smaller than mine so it might not be a small thing to her. Even though your daughter is older I think the same would apply, she doesn't want you to be mad at her. Its a good thing that she is talking to you, so maybe watching your reaction will help with the crying. I have to do the same thing, good luck.
