I've read into this all over, but I can only find, "from frustration" or autism. He always threw fits where he tried to throw himself on the floor and would end up hitting his head. He had to go to a babysitter for me to work months ago, and I don't know that the behavior started then, but it may have. He just randomly hits himself in the head, nothing else. The other day, we were blowing kisses back and forth and then he started smacking himself. It's been going on for a while. I feel like it's my fault because I may not be as attentive as he needs. And when I'd had him at 18 I didn't know what I was doing, was depressed about it and upset. I feel so ashamed to say it, but I would yell at him to "shut up" when he'd cry for no reason. I would then hold him and rock him back to sleep but I'd be upset, and he could probably sense that in that I wasn't cooing or singing, just rocking. Is this my fault? What could it be?Answer Question
