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?

    Thank you very much for the response.  I must just have to find Yoga for kids and see if she'll  have fun with it.

     welcome       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.
