My daughter is 18 months but since she was about 7 months, when we tell her 'No' instead of throwing herself on the floor or screaming, she hits herself on the side of her forhead/face! We dont spank, we dont leave her with babysitters... We cant figure it out, is this some sort of phase?? I went to Borders and prob looked through 20 books and all they mention is when kids hit other kids... not themselves.Answer Question

"It's a behavioral issue and is caused by low frustration tolerance." -amethystrse
Our pediatrician said the same thing about our daughter doing this. She gets on the floor and will bang her head on the ground. A lot of kids do it, outgrow it. I wouldn't worry about it much. The only time she has really hurt herself by head-banging, she did it by accident. You can see now that she still head-bangs, but does it softer.
