Hi everyone!! im new to this site! but i was wondering does anyone else have a very sensitive toddler? i mean very my daughter is 3 and is soo sensitive she crys over everything i never have to raise my voice because just a calm normal tone please dont do that sets her into a BIG crying spell!!! shes so scared of all bugs and i mean all! ants lightning bugs flys everything! she wont play in the grass because of bugs and she will cry if dirt or snow gets on her clothes or shoes we have tried everything to show her its ok but nothing has worked! oh and shes terrified of FUZZ! yes pocket fuzz and fuzz off blankets and stuff animals! i love her so much but this is getting unreal! any advise would be great!
Sorry to hear your are having some troubles with that.
The best advice I suppose would mainly be, be the bad mommy for a moment and make her sit in the grass and show her that there is nothing wrong with it. Try no to enable her behavior when she starts crying. Try talking to her, or showing her, you sitting in the grass or whatever the situation is, and that it doesn't hurt mommy it won't hurt you.
Best of luck. Wish I could be of more help, sadly my boy is very tough always being a little daredevil....so not much experience with a sensitive one.
hi and welcome!!!
my LO is sensitive, but not as much as your little one. she still cries very easily. she used to be so afraid of bugs, and DH would gently show her every bug he found. now she picks them up herself. maybe if you calmly show her how it is nothing to be afraid of.
Welcome! My eldest was/is like that. Its getting better as she's getting older. We try as much as possible to just ignore it. I know that sounds mean but crying over water on clothing was just a bit too much. We deal with it when its something to cry over and just ignore when its not.
