My nephew did this constantly, and he was two as well. Whenever he wasn't happy about something, or when someone left the house and he didn't want them to he would do this. He would run to the door and slam his head off things for a bout an hour straight. We couldn't get him to stop, no matter what he did. Finally he just grew out of it. Sorry I couldn't be of much help! Good luck!

Stay consistant when he does not listen by putting him in time out.  He is the one who will get the headaches as much as we hate seeing them do this.

I have a son that used to do that. He's doing it as a way to express his anger since he can't express it verbally. I had to use time out when my son did it, because that is the only way to get him to stop. I would explain to him (in a way that he could understand) that hurting himself was not acceptable and put him in time out. He got the point after a couple of months, and stopped. If your son continues to do it then I would talk to his pediatrician about it so it can be documented that HE is doing it himself, and maybe take him to see a child therapist that can help him (and you) redirect when he gets angry.

My mom tells me he does it cuz he gets jealous of his little sister cuz when he stays with my mom (sometimes) he doesn't do that :/

Hi
When he does this again, do nothing he will stop when he sees he won't get your attention. Now if he continues to do this, and begins to hurt himself see a doctor for advice.
