Synonyms of "Overreact" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre overreact e underreact ?
A: "Overreact" and "underreact" are opposites.

"Overreact" means to react too much.
And "underreact" means to not react at all or to react to little.

For example

Overreact
A boy falls off his bicycle and scrapes his elbow. The boy is crying a little bit. A neighbour brings the boy to his mother.
The boy's mother screams: "OH MY GOD! HE FELL OFF HIS BICYCLE! OH MY GOD, WE HAVE TO GET HIM TO THE HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW! OH MY GOD, HE'S GOING TO DIE!"
That's overreacting. The boy is certainly not going to die, and he doesn't need to go to hospital. The mother should have washed his elbow and put a plaster on it. And she should have said something to make him feel better and maybe given him something to drink. But instead of doing what she should have done, she overreacted.

Underreact
A boy falls off his bicycle and scrapes his elbow. The boy is crying a little bit. A neighbour brings the boy to his mother.
The boy's mother says: "He fell off his bicycle? Why did he do that?" And she says to the boy: "Go do your homework."
That's underreacting. The mother should have washed his elbow and put a plaster on it. And she should have said something to make him feel better and maybe given him something to drink. But she didn't do any of the things that she should have done. She completely underreacted.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre overreact e exaggerated ?
