5 Helpful Ways to Comfort a Crying Child

From newborns to adulthood, crying is a release of emotion that is perfectly healthy and natural. Newborn babies are solely dependant on their parents and crying is their only form of communication. As such, there are a myriad of things they may be trying to communicate with different cries.

As they get older, the reasons for crying in toddlers and young children will change. Sometimes, it can be frustrating to deal with constant tears and tantrums, particularly if you have more than one child.

As parents, we need to understand the source of frustration and emotions our little ones are going through to best decide how we can soothe them and provide them with the reassurance they need.
