I hate it when a kid MAKES themselves cry (over not getting to a toy first) until they hyperventilate and when they cough for over an hour to irritate me. My responses today to both kids were, "I'll check on you when I hear you pass out." and "If you throw up, Sweetie, make sure you clean it up." A huge step up from stabbing herself with pencils and attacking me.

We haven't had hyperventilating yet (guess I should feel lucky?), but we do have one who fake cries multiple times each day. Goes out of his way to find "reasons" to do so.

I love the fake cries. They drive me nuts too but I know my daughter will be a star actress some day because of them. She hasn't quite mastered bringing on the tears though. So I usually just tell her, "Nice show but I need to see some tears." Later on she usually apologizes, "Mom, I'm sorry for putting on a show earlier. It was all fake. I promise I will never do it again." LOL.

Ooh, I just thought of something!! What if next time you gave your kids a little tupperware container and tell them to save their tears cause they are using so many they will surely run out. Hee hee hee.

Take care!!

Oh too funny :) Two of my fake cryers have a pattern that I like to imitate while they wailing: sob sob sob...giant air suck. sob sob sob... giant air suck. There is a wooing noise that goes along with this and I like to see if I can match the pitch :) I know... compassion runneth over!
