My just turned 4 year old son cries at the smallest wee thing.

Customer Question

My just turned 4 year old son cries at the smallest wee thing. Anything can set him off and not any 1 thing in particular. Im starting to think there may be a problem.

Has your son had a thorough physical examination in order to determine the cause of his sensitivity?

No not as yet. Do you think he should have?
Expert:  Ralph LMHC replied 7 years ago.

I think before you attribute the problem to a psychological factor, all possible physical causes should be eliminated. This requires a thorough work up by a competent pediatrician. Once all physical causes have been eliminated then you can address the potential psychological issues.
