40 Parents Are Sharing All The Hilariously Absurd Reasons Why Their Kids Cry, And You Couldn’t Make Them Up (New Pics)

People cry for a variety of reasons, but it’s usually the kinds of extreme feelings of happiness or sadness that get the waterworks flowing. Not for kids though. Kids quickly learn that crying gets a reaction from their parents, and can begin bawling in dramatic fashion at the drop of a hat.

Because we know this, we are allowed to laugh at the seemingly cataclysmic situations that these kids find themselves in. Although it might seem that someone is about to die, that kid just isn’t allowed to eat the cat food. Or throw books at her parents face. Or any of the other absurd reasons why kids decide to throw a major wobbly. As a sequel to our previous post, we here at Bored Panda have made another list of the hilariously ridiculous reasons why kids cry, so scroll down below to check it out and share your own stories in the comments!

But what are some legitimate reasons why your child might cry? There is usually something deeper going on behind these tantrums over nothing, the most common of which is over-tiredness. One of the most frequent reasons cry is just simple fatigue, and it can lead to some pretty irrational behavior.

Keep an eye out for common signs of tiredness like as rubbing eyes, yawning or looking a little glazed over in the eyes. It might just be time to settle your little one down for a nap to help them get back into a better mood, and not fly into a temper for the most absurd reasons.

Just we get a little grumpy and diva-like when we are hungry, so do kids. Usually they will tell you straight out that they are peckish, but for kids who can’t speak yet, crying is the way to get their point across. So if ridiculous reactions to silly things are occuring, reach for a healthy snack and see if that helps.

Kids can get stressed out too, which can also be a cause of irrational crying. Some parents, while meaning well, can overload and over stimulate their kids with playdates, soccer practice, language lessons, you name it. Sometimes kids need a little peace and calm so they can relax and unwind, just like we do.

Kids can be hungry for attention, and if they have learned that crying gets it, they will keep it up. Even negative attention, telling them to stop it and shut up for example, reinforces this kind of behavior. If you know your child is having a tantrum purely for the attention, it’s best to ignore them. It’s no fun to scream and shout the house down if nobody is listening!

If you give plenty of positive attention to your child, this kind of attention-seeking should be less of an issue. Let them know that good behavior is rewarded with positive reinforcement, offer lavish praise and set aside some time each day to play, together, one on one.
