    Grown-Up Emotions Vs. Little Kid Emotions

    Obvisoully grownups have alot harsher situations to deal with then little kids but little kids have there own problems to and i was wondering does it take up the same amount of emotions in the grown up and the little kid because they are the same emotions just on a different maybe more complex considered important situation for the grownups. My parents used to tell me as a young teen that my suck up your problems there nothing u have to deal when your older but at the time the emotions were just as intense as they were know and they never treated my emotions as serious or important because they always have BIGGER ;) problems and is that right? or maybe i was just overreacting to thing

    I beg to differ. the opposite is true. think of
    - little kids who go through physical or psychological abuse?
    - little kids who get beat up and suffer from severe bullying at school
    - little kids who are lost, scared and confused and have no one to help them
    - little kids who have no friends, feel all alone, powerless and lack the experience, coping skills or any kind of tangible power

    adults have resources, skills and past experiences to draw on; children do not. that needs to be factored into the harshness of the situation. children are learning everything for the first time, so it's common for children to experience harsh, intense emotions of fear and frustration on a daily basis. think of it like doing drugs. your first experience is the most intense, after which, your body and mind adapt and each consecutive time requires a larger and larger dose. this is how emotional responses are. a child who experiences death for the first time, for example, is more likely to feel a stronger emotional response than a 45 year old who has suffered the death of 2-3 close friends and a few family members.

    Edit: never mind, I read your post again and it looks like we pretty much agree

    I'm sure kids and teens feel like their problems are just as bad. I remember feeling that way but they are most often more easily solved than adult problems.

    Hello, little robot. I see you're still running v8.0 software but you're wearing a new chassis. How's that working for you? I see. You feel obsolete? Aw, don't be. Newer isn't always better. Although updating is your choice. However, once the procedure is done, there's no going back.

    What's your manufacture date? Depending on your internal battery type, we may have the appropriate software update for your model. Please set an appointment up at your convenience to get this underway.

    According to Freud when kinds we all pass through a stage called idealization-devaluation in which we have black and white thinking as a way to deal with overwhelming emotions.

    As defenseless little kids we tend to be overwhelmed by the problems presented, and as a way to deal with this feelings, we tend to see events or people as all good or all bad. We idealize the good ones and feel protected by them, and we devaluate the bad and stay away from it.

    As we grow up and become more self-dependent we develop more sophisticated ways to deal with emotions.

    The emotions are the same... the situations may be more complex but the intensity of the emotions will be about the same -- adults may just be more able to deal with them and express themselves, while kids, who are still learning how to express their feelings, and how to explain and label what they're feeling may only be able to say 'I'm angry', or 'I feel sad' ...
    So I guess I agree with you.

    But then again.... the teen years are a pretty 'grey' area. You have to keep in mind that hormones are raging at that point. So the emotions are still valid, and so are the problems, but the expression of what is felt will probably be exaggerated.

    I have root access to my IOS. I would prefer a faster processor and a bit more memory if you have it. My chassis looks fine on the outside.

    On topic: I am going to side with the child on this one. Children growing up generally take the brunt of emotions just because it happens the first time. Think about it, teenage suicide rates are much higher than adult ones (well...after you account for the population distribution difference).

    I'm not sure if that is in support of my opinion or if it is completely unrelated.
