My son (almost 4 now) went through a stage where he was so close to the 2 yr old word explosion but not there yet and when he couldn't get his point across , he would hit himself or fling himself backwards without much warning and flop on the floor in tantrum. Iwas so sad at the time that he did this, and tried to understand him. I now understand that reason and he grew out of it. I now have a 2 yr old girl (Happy bday Molly - yesterday) who when we say "no" or please don't do that, bangs her head repeadily against any available wall. As I would like for her not to crack her skull, or cause permanent brain injury....I know instictively this will end as the words come, besides a helmet, how do I keep her safe?????
