As a parent of a 19-month old, I work with teaching my daughter each day to control her emotions. Everyone, as a child, experienced a struggle to control their emotions. My daughter, for example, has thrown herself on the floor to cry, because she is mad that we won't let her do something. This is part of growing up, kids want to do something and as a parent you can't let them do it for safety reasons. Now, the struggle comes with trying to teach our daughter how to control those emotions.
