I have a daughter who cries and whines over everything. She cries if something does not go her way, if the other kids get stuff at school... just over everything. I have tried everything to fix it nothing helps. I think something is wrong with her please help. I have thought maybe she has Aspergers syndrome?

So she cries and you try to fix it and make it the way she wants? Crying is working for her then, isn't it? Stop paying attention to it. Let her know crying about it will get her nowhere. She's only doing it to get her own way.

My SD is like that. She's also 7 and cries at the drop of a hat. If her food isn't the way she wants, if it's too cold, if she thinks the kids at her school don't like, if she wants a drink and don't want to go get it her self. If you talk to her about her behaviour. I also though something must be wrong with her but we had her checked and she was fine. They tend to do that because it's the emotion we give the most attention. Usually I ignore the behaviour. If she starts to cry for trivial reason like not wanting to do homework but wants to play instead then I tell her that if she finishes she can go play but not sooner. And really mean it. You will have to ignore her behaviour. You can and should have her check. But if she is able to communicate but just throw fits then it's more a behaviour problem than an illness. The ridiculousness of the crying use to get on my nerves or sometimes just depress me. I'd feel like we are doing something to her why she's just crying for seemingly no reason. It's gotten better. Just learn to ignore it. She's not hurt or hungry or uncomfortable. Just snuggle with a good book until she finish or decide to stop and be more Productive. It's work for our family.
