My daughter is 4.5 years old and was diagnosed last October with MERLD, ADHD, and SPD. Ever since November, every time she cries she will ask if she has red eyes. I made the mistake of telling her yes one day and she bursted into a bloody-murder cry! I quickly told her "you have the prettiest blue eyes in the entire world!" and she quickly stopped crying, wiped her tears.
Why does my daughter ask me if she has red eyes every time she cries?
