Some children are placid, and nothing seems to annoy or upset them. Others often feel angry. Their response can seem out of proportion. They might become furious over minor problems and concerns.
When younger children feel angry, they often have tantrums, a physical outburst to express their emotions because they don’t yet have the language skills to communicate how they feel. Most children grow out of tantrums around the age of 7-8.
However, as your child starts puberty, they go through huge emotional and physical changes. It's common for them to show the behaviours you saw when they were much younger. This usually settles down naturally over time.
