off late from the time i hav taken a sabbatical and started to stay at home, my son has developed an irritating habit of crying even without any provocative factor,, tried analysing it with him, reasoning it out, scolding him,, but nothing seems to be helping,,, can some one help me with some advice??

I agree with Cheryls reply. My daughter had gotten in the habit of starting crying for no reason, when I realised that she was just after my attention, I found the best thing to do was to ignore her when she started up and it worked she now doesnt do it so much with me (just daddy who she has realised is a soft touch).

I know it sounds tough and it is, but try ignoring them. When they see they aren't getting any reaction out of you they'll realise it's not worth making their throat hurt. It's not going to work the first time, but if you stick with it it'll work. They are trying to see how far they have to go get their own way or to get special attention. sitting down and talking to them or yelling at them is giving them this attention. they are testing boundries. Good luck

Im going through the same thing, recently sarted staying home with my daughter and she cries all the time. I send her to her room and tell her she can stay there till she is done crying, she goes to her room and calms herself down but it is frustrating. I am interested in hearing some suggestions as well.
