My daughter is 7. She is a very empathetic child and takes everything to heart. Lately she has been misbehaving more at home and has been disrespectful. Today I asked her if there was anything I needed to know and she said that "everybody is mean" to her. she tends to blow things somewhat out of proportion. Someone can say something and she takes it as a personal attack. I just don't know what to do. I'm at a loss at how to handle all this. It's just seems to continue to get worse.
That's my DD1, everyone is mean to her, and no body loves her, I love her younger sisters more... Etc. I don't know what to tell you.
My 8 year old son is the same way
I've always been terrified of others being mean to my soft-hearted and passive children. I try really hard to instill in them that they are their own best friend and they are amazing and spectacular and kind and neat and if someone doesn't see that, it's their own problem.
