My 5-year-old boy seems tense and thinks most of the time. He cannot accept if anyone is unhappy with him, he gets really angry, and he starts crying on things which we cannot understand.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Children do get upset because of several reasons other than hereditary. Mostly it triggers because of present stressor in the environment such as unfulfillment of basic needs (food, social, hygiene, health, etc.). Other stressors might be lack of parental love and attention. You did not mention the type of thoughts or content he is experiencing. Are there any other behavioral observations?
More behavioral observations and history are required to understand the case better as follows:
1. The onset of behavior.
2. Try to note crying behavior with surroundings.
3. Anger triggers.
4. Get physical check up of your child (iron and vitamin deficiency also lead to such agitation).
5. Mother's history during pregnancy.
6. Home environment. I hope it helps.
