Every toddler has a unique personality. Some toddlers are content and settled, some are adventurous and alert… and some cry hysterically at the most minor of injuries.
You may be astounded to see your little one burst into tears when he gets a slight cut in his finger, or when he tripped while playing on the soft grass. You know he didn’t really hurt himself that much, and you want him to toughen up.
Nobody knows for sure why one kid cries easily, while another is more resilient to knocks, bumps and bruises. It could simply be due to innate differences in temperament, or possibly caused by overprotective parenting. He has learnt from experiences that sobbing loudly is guaranteed to grab your attention and sympathy.
