While a certain amount of anger and frustration is to be expected in children, some children become easily frustrated by the normal ins and outs of a day. This frustration can lead to angry outbursts and other behavioral problems.
The ages between 5 and 12 are critical to a child’s social development. This is the time that children usually find a “best friend” and a same-sex peer group which will go a long way towards promoting a strong sense of identity. Failure to make friends can have a significant impact on a child’s life, and can contribute to severe emotional problems in childhood and adolescence.
