My 15 month old son has suddenly started hurting me, usually when I'm trying to get him to sleep. He's like a little tiger cub - he pounces on me and starts trying to rip my face off. Sometimes he hurts me so much I feel like slapping him, even though I really don't believe in hitting kids. Has anyone had a similar problem and how did you stop it? He takes no notice if I tell him no - he just thinks it's funny. He has also starting banging his head really hard on the floor every time I say no to him - he gives himself bruises! I am REALLY hoping this is a short-lived phase!
