Why my toddler is always angry?

Message length 300 characters recommended

During the toddler years, your child may just simply seem angry all of the time because they are not quite sure how to express their feelings. They may be expressing what you consider anger, but it's really frustration. They are frustrated because they want what they want and can't have it always. They are frustrated because they don't like certain foods. They are simply frustrated because this is a changing stage for this child and it can really come off angry.

If you feel your toddler's anger is deeper than just your average toddler angst, I would check with a physician because it could be linked to a mood disorder or other mental health issue, but overall an angry toddler is simply their way of expressing their emotions in the easiest way they know how.
