My daughter is 2 and can have tantrums for no reason but worse of all when something doesn't go her way she will purposely hit her head on the ground and leave bruises. I gave up on naps because when I lay her down she bangs her head on the crib rail and gives herself a bloody nose. She has little patience and is very clingy so even when I go to the restroom she will hit her head cause she wants held. My husband works long days so it's mainly just me that handles her. I'ts not all bad but it brings me to tears and I feel depressed about it because I don't know what to do. Sometimes when she is real mad she smacks her face. :( What causes this? What does one do?
