23 Lies All Parents Tell Themselves

Tell Mommy: How Do Your Children Express Themselves?

My son, the shrieker, has turned over a new leaf. The same child who at eight-months, found his lungs and has since unleashed gutter wails that make everyone within a 50 mile radius cringe is now taking a kinder, gentler approach to getting his point across. Well, sometimes...

When his sister shut him out of their room recently, he ran to me with tears flying from his eyes saying, "I sad. I so sad." Then, he looked up and said, "You happy, but I sad." I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry in response. Either way, I was impressed by the passion my lil guy put behind his proclamation. Every child expresses his or her feelings differently be it through words, attitudes or actions. How do your wee ones express themselves?

My son will yell in jibberish if you (or something) has made him mad or frustrated.

He's kind of sensitive around the house (apparently not as sensitive in Kindergarten though) so he'll go up to whoever hurt his feelings and tell them what they did and that he's mad/sad, whatever. I have no idea where he got it from, maybe too much Noggin tv....

My 2 year old usually just repeats herself till she's noticed sometimes she'll yell but not alot. Lately though I think she's going through an independence streak and saying things very loudly and saying no for everything.

The 8 month old does a lot of arching his back and making mmmmmm sounds when he's upset. The 9 year old gets quiet and does this annoying stomping pout thing. When you ask what's wrong you get a "nothing, nothing is wrong". Gawd he's so like me ;-)

Totally depends on the situation, how tired they are, who is around, etc etc etc. It can range from "Ok cool" when something goes wrong to an all-out tantrum.
