Parts of Our Brain Grow at Different Rates!!
If you are a parent I am sure you have experienced the "Terrible Twos" - that time in a child's development when tantrums are the order of the day. If you are not a parent but have spent some time around very young children it is that part of a child's behaviour that makes you question whether you ever want to be a parent!! The Terrible Twos occur when a child knows what he wants to communicate but does not have the speech skill to say what he or she wants to say. Out of frustration the child will very often get angry and throw a tantrum.
So why does this happen? Well there are a number of factors but one of the most significant causes is related to rate at which parts of the brain mature. The language areas of the brain become active when a child is about 18 months old. Unfortunately for parents, the understanding part of the brain matures before the part that produces speech. This of course results in that time when toddlers understand more than they can say, hence the frustration.
