Making kids cry

This doesn't happen that often and it is surprizing that it is usually older children.  Friday I was reviewing State reseach papers(4th grade) and I told one girl to cut a sentence because it was repetitive.  I tried to explain flow and choppy writing and the difference to the reader.  Well I guess she liked that sentence and so she went back to her desk and burst into tears.  I told her that she is the author and if she feels that that sentence is important to her paper then to leave it in.  I tried to point out where she had already said almost the exact same thing...but oh well.  I tured a kids card for distracting behavior and he was fine with it, he expected it...i'm possitive.  Girls are so much harder to deal with than boys.
