Our daughter constantly work on something. Her mind does not want to be idle even a bit. When she is not doing crafts, she is reading books, or doing some sketches. The problem is when the result of her work is not up to her satisfaction, she gets frustrated and always end up crying.
This is what she was working on that made her upset. I told her that what she did actually looks good. Well for someone like me who doesn't know how to draw, this is pretty good, I think.
My daughter is like my husband, they are a bit of a perfectionist. If they can't attain the end result that they are hoping for, they get frustrated. For me, I always give it a break and come back the other time to figure it out. Parenting can sometimes a clear reflection of our traits. We can see ourselves in our kids of how they perceive on things.
