The fact that cortisol is released in the brain when an animal is subjected to chronic stress does not translate to the same being true of minor stress. Children who are tired cry. To imagine that every time a child cries they should have intervention from the parent is to create a spoiled child. Imagine that being employed in a grocery store. If the only thing that will stop the crying is to give the child what he/she wants so his/her brain cells aren't killed off during those minutes of crying, is to create a monster-child. Please, let's have a little reason. This isn't science. This is the misuse of science.
