  • my son does this sometimes but not out of anger. I've seen him bang his head on the sliding door to get our attention if we're outside.

  • My son does the same thing when he gets mad or gets in trouble. He banged his head on the corner of our coffee table and had to get stitches. He has stopped for the most part, but does it sometimes on a flat surface (the floor or the wall) when he's mad.
