My daughter has always been excessively sensitive. When she was about 5 or 6 we had a birthday party and when everyone started to sing she broke down crying. Any time she perceives personal critism she has a similar reaction, even now that she's 16. Today was the moment when I became exceptionally concerned.
She was ready to go to her boyfriend's house to celebrate his birthday with his family. I'm sure she was nervous about meeting them all but she got ready to go. On thier way to the car they both fell in the snow, but instead of just brushing herself off and moving on, she stormed in the house crying. We eventually had to send the poor boy off without her.
I'm worried. This isn't something she ever grew out of but as she becomes an adult the repercussions of breakdown are going to be worse. She has never had a breakdown at school, at least that I'm aware of, but I'm still concerned.
Am I overreacting myself?
