My son is 15 months old and it feels like the terrible two's have come early. He throws fits multiple times a day. It doesn't take much to set him off; a simple "no", diaper changes, or even making him come inside after playing in the yard. These fits usually start with a scream and then he bends over and hits he head on the ground/floor (only once, not over and over) I'm surprised he hasn't knocked himself out yet. He does the same thing when he is in his crib in the middle of the night and is upset because he can't find his binky, except he hits is head off the side of the crib instead of the floor. Has anyone experienced anything similar to this? What did you do? I don't want to reinforce this by giving him attention when he throws these fits, but I also don't want him to hurt himself.
