Nigthmare in the family

It's En En's crying and screaming!!!
It has been over a week this little girl cried and screamed for no particular reason. Right now, she will "tune on" her radio at least once per day for almost 1 hour... so, so irritating to the ears...

Back to what is her problem? Or perhaps what is the issues with us, the adult, who looks after her everyday? We got to see things both ways because mummy realised sometimes the problem is not from the child, it's the different perspective from adult. Mummy and Ah Mah observe and figure out how to tackle whenever En En crys for nothing. For sure, she's looking for attention and needs someone to pamper her.

Just imagine, she will cry when someone refuses her in anything, yes... just anything is good enough for her to take as a reason and start crying. Then, she will force herself to scream louder and cry longer even we are trying to distract her, sweet talk to her,... just name whatever ideas you have. Guess what she did? Cry even louder and shut both eyes!!! "Keng" or not? Exactly like small babies when they feel exhausted they will cry out loud and squint the eyes in order to shut the stimulation from outside world. Therefore, En En wishes to hear nothing and to see nothing but everyone in the family was so stress and panic! Even a small sound from Baby Zheng will cause En En to burst into tears within 3 seconds...

When she will stop? No idea... we tried the soft way - not working; the hard way - not working... she will stop when she think it's enough. The most ridiculous part is there were times whereby she stopped crying because she's thirsty and tired. She accepted water or milk with eyes closed but still awake. After finished her drinks, she started to cry again! Wah-lah!!! What does this means?? Sometimes we feel so geram and wanted to whack her butt but on the other hands, this little girl is just too funny... :)

What type of "baby" is En En now? Definitely a spoiled baby... Any ideas to handle this type of kids...

I think my gal went through this phrase too, when we just moved here. She wanted attention but I couldn't give her as I'm always busy at work or at home. So, I just let her cry. Really just let her cry, but I will make up with her when she cool down. I try my best to have one to one session with her a few times a week, even just for a few minutes. But if she cries like that, I will ignore her as tell her that I can't get what she wants as she's just acting like a baby. :P
Fortunately, this phrase is over in a few months. Phew...

shoppingmum is right. Ignore her, she will understand coz she is big gal now. She just had a brother, off cause you are less attention to her liao. Just like Jing used to be like that too when i had Yang. But need to keep on and on "consult" her! Good luck.

Ya my mum also advise me to ignore ABi if she starts to throw tantrum. Seems to work.

But you are right, it is a bit funny (to scream, then ask for water, then scream some more)... :)

Yep, I guess it is just her way of getting attention from everyone. Does it help if you ask En En to help you out with changing the baby and all, just so she doesn't feel left out?

We experience the same thing when we were back in KL. My nephew also cry whenever he sees my dad around and wants my dad to carry him. If he sees my dad carries Darrius he will also cry.
