Toddlers’ language skills and their emotional development

It might seem logical that young children with well developed language skills are better at managing their emotions than those with slower language development.

An American study published in the journal “Child Development” has confirmed this, finding that toddlers with stronger language skills are better at managing their frustration than other toddlers by the time they’re at preschool.

They can describe and express their emotions, and have often learned how to cope and distract themselves if they start to feel angry. So by advancing children’s verbal skills educators and parents can also improve children’s emotional development. Have you noticed a link between language skills and emotional maturity in young children?
