Dad Saw This Face in the Back View Mirror. The Reason His Daughter Got So Emotional is Absolutely ADORABLE!!!
Toddlers are very emotional creatures. At the age of 3-4 they already have a personality. It is parents’ duty to shape and polish it. Even though, 3-year-old kids start understanding their emotions, they have problems controlling them. If the toddler feels something, he’s likely to act on it. But when a child can recognize an emotion, he handles the situation better. For example, instead of screaming or hitting, the toddler says: “I’m mad.” It is important to explain and talk about different emotions with the child, but it’s even more important to listen to the kid, and hear him out when he experiences emotions. Toddlers start showing empathy around age 4. That’s when they can relate to a friend that is hurt or sad, and support him. Toddlers want to be independent, you hear them say “I do it.” But, since their motor and reasoning skills are still developing, they are not able to complete the task, and they get frustrated. In this case parents should not run and help right away. Allowing the kid to feel some frustration, helps him learn persistence. Offer the assistance, and don’t forget to praise your little one for efforts.
