The ability to use words as a toddler may affect the way kids manage their anger later in life, a new study has found. Children with good language skills at age 2 expressed less anger during frustrating situations at age 4 than those with less advanced language skills, researchers said.
According to the study findings, children whose language skills developed quickly also expressed less anger at age 4. While previous research suggested a link between language skills and the expression of anger in young children, few studies had followed children over time, 'LiveScience' reported.
