5 Hilarious Reasons Why Kids Cry

Throughout adulthood, we begin to drop many of the things that once upset us because let’s face it—the reason many resist and detest the urge to cry is that if you let yourself, it is all too easy.

Remember the days when a good cry was enough to get through that split knee from falling off the jungle gym or mourning a slightly brown carrot? You probably don’t, because thankfully, you and your memory have let it go.

Much of these occurrences were likely laughed at the moment and discarded by humored adults. The important thing to remember here is that yes, children are people too. More importantly, however, they are tiny humans that have NO concept of just how tickling their ridiculous antics can be.

Here are some staples of the crying arsenal for your refreshment.

1. They Need to Wear Something

Pants, bibs, birthday buttons, raincoats, sunscreen, you name it. If a kid has had to put it on, a kid has cried about it. Wearing things is the first necessity/inconvenience imposed upon babies. It is a pain they learn early, and with that, how to communicate their complete and utter disapproval of even things they perhaps cried to put on. Honestly, the same.

2. They Can’t Take a Trip There

For every child, there are those places they would die to go. They will stop at nothing to convince you that without that trip to the moon, sitting in the drivers’ seat of the pickup truck while in motion, or a journey into the television, they will implode and cease to exist. They must let you know the grave situation at hand.

3. They Can’t Fit That

Fitting onto a bed full of stuffed animals, into a hole in the wall, or a doodle on top of an existing home artwork, kids, are triggered like no other by the incongruency of what they envisioned versus reality. Again, relatable.

4. Someone Said

Kids have been crying over random things people say since the beginning of time. Whether the content of what they are saying is upsetting, or just people opening their mouths in general, the mere act of speaking to or around a child can set them off. Saying hello? Fireworks. Telling them, they’re cute? Devastation. Insisting that the sky is blue and not yellow? Total tearjerker.

5. Because They Just Can’t

This is probably the most adult of child crying tendencies. Children everywhere fall to pieces at the realization that whatever they are doing is, too much, or even too little. They can’t when the porcelain bowl they swiped from the kitchen isn’t big enough for their plastic dolphin. The dare of an adult preventing a child from eating soap, instant soap opera. Offering a kid a good time at the park and getting there only to notice the swings are “red,” catastrophe.

All this being said, being a kid is in many ways, like being an adult. Except, kids have the luxury of being called “normal” or “tired” when they throw a completely unwarranted yet understood without question, tantrum. And us? We get to record them.
