ElizabethB Posted December 3, 2011 Share Posted December 3, 2011 (edited) This is from an activity I help teach with another lady. We are NOT the type of women that make children cry. In fact, we are kind of softies, actually. (Well, there is obviously some crying going on here, but it is not because we are being mean.) As we had our 3rd crying incident, all boys, actually, I had to stop myself from laughing as the common refrain here when people talk about their children crying while homeschooling is, "Kids don't cry at school." I just wanted to let everyone here know that 6 and 7 year old boys who go to public school do sometimes cry in a classroom environment, and they cry when something is a bit harder than they are used to. (Maybe they don't get challenged enough to cry in most schools? Or maybe they do cry at school, too, I have no idea.) The other children do not comment or look shocked, and the children who cried have not been ostracized or lost friends over the crying.
