This sounds like manipulative behaviour to me, KathyB -- and people who play games are best challenged by pointing out what they are doing, for example  " I have a feeling that you are only crying because you want to get your own way, but it isn't going to work.  Here's a tissue. "  Alternative approach, don't let her think her crying has affected you in any way, just hand her a tissue, say nothing and after a decent interval ask her in a neutral voice if she's ready to carry on now.
