Ok, so I asked my 'anger' question before and now my question is, how do I get my three year old to quit hitting himself when he gets angry? If I tell him something to do, like it's time to pick up toys or let's get dressed for the day/bed and he doesn't want to do it, he will get mad instantly and start hitting himself. Ugh... I'm sooooooo frustrated and cried myself to sleep last night. I am getting a divorce and my 'husband' doesn't help and just gives him whatever he wants and I feel I am totally on my own in the disipline area... Sigh.. Any advice?Answer Question

The more attention a child gets from a behavior, the more they will do it. Part of the reason he does it is because of the attention he gets when he does this.
