My daughter has been doing this for quite some time now. Whenever she gets mad, she starts smacking her head. Sometimes hard, sometimes lightly. Sometimes she also punches herself in the face and screams while she's doing it. Before doing this, she would try to rip out her hair during moments of anger. What she gets angry about is like if I'm holding her and I set her down or if she's climbing on something and I ask her to get down or take something from her that she's putting in her mouth.
Is this common or normal behavior?
