There is a reason why children cry so much, according to science. Crying starts in the limbic system, which is divided into two parts: sympathetic and parasympathetic.

The sympathetic part produces aggressive responses while the latter assists in processing our emotions for us to rest ultimately.

A developmental science expert and a clinical counselor named Deborah MacNamara explained, “Crying will often begin as part of a sympathetic response—‘I can’t have that cookie’ or ‘I want more screen time’—but the full-on waterworks only arrive as part of a parasympathetic response.”

“So by the time a child is sad-sobbing, their brain has shifted from pursuit to sadness, and it has already processed the futility of the outcome they were hoping for,” she added. Afterward, the brain processes and slowly accepts and adapts.
