Toddler tantrums have a lot to do with the child’s age and how they deal with their emotions. Toddlers don't have the capacity to control themselves. When your child is having trouble figuring something out, completing a specific task, or is unable to find the words to express their thoughts or feelings, frustration with the situation might trigger anger, resulting in a temper tantrum. 


As most 2-year-olds have a limited vocabulary, parents might only understand what a toddler says some of the time. When your child wants to tell you something and you don't understand — or you don't comply with your child's wishes — you might have a tantrum on your hands. In addition to this, your child may be thirsty, hungry or tired and his or her threshold for frustration is likely to be even lower.
