Kids are walking, talking balls of emotions, and often times it's difficult to decipher one feeling from another. Are they hungry, or tired? Are they frustrated, or sad? Are they seeking attention, or do they need to be alone? Figuring out what big feeling they're expressing takes time, to be sure, so if you're asking yourself, "Is my child angry?" know that you're not alone.
As a mom, it's easy to assume the worst when you're deciphering your kids' feelings, actions, and how they may impact their futures. I, for one, (and especially as a new mom) obsessed over what my kids were doing and how their responses to the world might clue me in on the kind of people I was raising. But the truth is, kids are kids. Toddlers are going to tantrum, and it doesn't necessarily mean they have some kind of anger problem. Young kids are going to throw toys and spit and sometimes hit, and it doesn't mean they're destined to lash out for the rest of their lives.
Paying attention to your kids' actions is important, to be sure, and if you're at all worried it's always best to speak with a trusted medical care professional. After all, that's what they're there for. But if your kid is doing the following, chances are they're not "angry" in a way that should concern you. They're just being kids.
