What the Expert Says:

We think that going to the parents would be the most appropriate action here.  They may be familiar with this behavior and have some ideas about how to correct it.  Also it may be that the child is simply of a difficult temperment.  One year olds are emotional and at a raw age.  They do not have the awareness to be able to process cognitive information so changing their behavior is not easy.  Talk to the parents and continue to be patient and comforting.  Please take care!

Please take care and remember that you can call the Boys Town National Hotline 24 hours a day at the number below, free of charge to discuss any parenting issue.  We are here to help, you are not alone!

I have a 1 year old and we are going through this phase right now. It is emotionally difficult- I want to figure out why it is happening and understand how to help her- especially when these are not the behaviors she learns from her dad and I.
My daughters doctor explained it really well to us. She is figuring out that her emotions and behaviors are connected and get a response (either positive or negative) from adults. They are learning to express themselves and their emotions. As an adult can you imagine trying to do this without words...
I don't think the previous comment is fair- to put it on the parents and say you will have to find a different daycare if you child can't stop expressing him/her self...

There are ways that we as educators and parents can help the young kids learn how to approriately express their frustration and anger. One year old is a hard time to teach this considering they can't understand everything you mean. Get on their  level and try to have as many positive interactions as you can with the child who gets upset.
