Helping Your Child Express Himself
Your toddler's improving language skills, combined with a stronger understanding of emotions, are helping him be better at Expressing Feelings. At this age, he'll show a wide range of emotions and have a number of likes and dislikes. He expresses affection openly, with hugs and kisses for his favorite people. Although he may still have outbursts when he's frustrated, these tantrums may be much less traumatic than when he was younger, as he is increasingly learning how to control his feelings and self-soothe himself.
