    Question Head Banger

    DD is now 17 months and is a head banger! She has a wicked temper like DW and I'm out of ideas. When she gets mad, she will scream. We tell her not to so then she smacks herself on top of the head. When we tell her not to hit her head she will then smack her head on the floor or the wall or her crib rail or my head if i pick her up. You would think that after three months of doing this she would get the idea that it hurts and not do it. She even gets bruises! She is a smart kid though she doesn't act like it. Anyone else have this problem or suggestions? DS never did this.

    Geez ethat is so frustrating. My dd did that some but not to the extent that you describe. ds now does that also. But I just ignore it. I know that sounds nuts and I do not know if that is the right thing for you to do because of the severity of your dd causing bruises. But it has been my experience that if it gets them attention they will keep doing it even if it is negative attention. ds did this just the other day and he hurt himself and then looked at me for my reaction. I did not react at all. and when he came to me nicely I said nicely"that hurts doesnt it" but I did not make a big deal. He has not done it again. I would talk to your ped. about it.

    No advice just hugs!! I hope this is just a phase, and would also talk to your ped.
