Little kids are prone to throw temper tantrums. It’s annoying, but it’s typical for children to express feelings in a loud, out-of-control and splenetic way because they just don’t know any better. As you age, you start to learn that keeping your anger in check is essential to maintaining respectful, solid relationships. There are plenty of adults that never learn this skill, and it’s best to avoid them at all costs.
