I have twin 17 month old boys that have become head bangers. One does it more than the other and it is starting to concern me. He bangs his head when he is frustrated or doesn't get what he wants right away. I have heard this is somewhat normal but at what point do I worry? He seems to consistently have a bruise in the center of his forehead. I have tried stopping him and holding him till his frustration subsides and I have tried walking away and ignoring him, but nothing seems to be stopping this behavior. Any ideas out there?
