Letting a baby or child cry causes anxiety in them and makes them feel as if no one is there to comfort them. I do not let my toddler cry for more than 10 minutes. If I wait a few minutes, he will sometimes fall back asleep on his own. if he doesn't, he needs something. If that is reassurance, then so be it. We all need that.. child or adult. I do not understand why people try to treat children as different human beings than the rest of us in regard to their needs. Would you ignore and older child, spouse, friend, etc. who was crying?
