  1. I don't know if that would work where I am. In the Gulf (middle eastern) children are known to cry the entire day until they get what they want. Some children will even cry for an entire month each day or even the year. I am really not sure why this is happening. Any ideas? Keep in mind the children are raised by maids and extremely pampered.

  2. Start playing games with other children try to ignore that kid 2 min ….once the class starts playing and enjoying the game ….that kid will stop crying
