my daughter has just started repeatedly hitting herself repeatedly in the face anytime i correct her or tell her that she cannot do something (go outside, have candy, put her toys in the fish tank...). she hits herself so hard in the face and eyes that she cries. its heart breaking to watch because i feel like its her own way to discipline herself. i don't think its just for attention because she will leave the room and do it with her back to me. i have heard that i should just ignore it, but i feel like she is actually hurting herself, and i really dont want her to continue abusing herself! does anyone have any advice??
