Does your toddler hit themself?????? Lock Rss

in the head when they get frustrated? Sometimes if i get cranky at my 2yo DS for something he will hit himself in the forehead with open palms. Its really starting to worry me because hes doing it more and more. I dont know how to stop him, we have tried stopping him by pulling his arms away from his head and saying no dont hit yourself. And i have tried ignoring it but its hard to ignore...hes not doing it really hard or anything but still enough to worry me.

Has anyone else been through this? How did you handle it?

DS1 who is also 2 went through a stage of hitting himself in the head when he got frustrated, i would just ignore him n walk away or just not even look at him when he was doing it. He eventually stopped.
Thanks I dont feel so alone. I thought it was just smacking his forehead but DP just told me that he was clawing his face and punching himself too the other night sad it makes me so upset, its not like his in big big trouble or anything either, its just as soon as you raise yout voice to tell him off
