My daughter will be 19 months on the 26th, and for the past 6 months or so, she is in the habit of hitting herself and/or pulling her hair out. She does it sometimes when she is mad, upset, when I tell her no not to do something or no not to get into something, and sometimes she does it and starts laughing like its funny and like she is trying to get me to laugh.
Is this normal child behavior?

My Daughter is 19m now & never does that nor did my Son. Although every child is different, I would talk to the Pediatrician about it. Has he seen anything out of the ordinary during the exams? Sounds like she is frustrated. Is there something stressful going on in your home? Yelling? Upset? Is she sleeping enough? Other children causing her upset/anxiety? Are you high strung? These may all be the cause of her behavior.
