Adult humans cry for a variety of reasons. Often extreme feelings of happiness or sadness cause us to burst into tears. Kids, however, are different. They cry. A lot. Constantly, it seems. Often, they cry because they’re overtired or hungry—which can be solved with a quick nap and a snack. (In my opinion, crying when you’re tired or hungry is totally reasonable!)
But to those of us that understand object permanence, the correct disposal of bodily fluids, and which poisonous household chemicals shouldn’t be consumed; the reasons that children throw tantrums may seem ridiculous. To them, though, their parents are just getting in the way of their dreams.
