Daily Tantrums In Preschoolers May Be Red Flag For Mental Illness.

The Chicago Tribune (9/26, Mann) reports that according to a study published Aug. 29 in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, “having frequent, out-of-control, out-of-the-blue tantrums can be a red flag for mental illness” in preschool children. After studying 1,500 youngsters ranging in age from three to five, researchers found that fewer than “10 percent of preschoolers have daily tantrums.” The Tribune points out, “The study was funded by the National Institute of Mental Health.”
