I'm Kelly, 34, new to this group, and I have an overly emotional 8 yr old daughter. Does any other moms have an overly emotional 8 yr old? How do you handle their emotions?

My 8 1/2 y/o ds2 has been more emotional this yr. I hate to say it, but it's probably hormones starting. Ds1 starting getting more emotional at 9 (he's 13 now). Not looking forward to when it starts w/ dd (6 1/2) b/c she's always been emotional. . .

You know, i was beginning to think her hormones are coming into play. She is 8 1/2 but it could be coming sooner than anticipated.

My daughter was/is overly emotional...I'm still figuring out how to deal with that.
