thanks for you reply mira11 but medication does not really apply to my son. he does not have outbursts (where i would assume) he would have a chemical imbalance thus need meds. he just simply uses crying as a crutch to "get over". i am just trying to get him to realize that he is getting too old for this technique. crying every time he is faced with something he doesn't necessarily want to do is not going to float.
he is a very happy boy....especially when all goes his way
