Every day during nap time and at bed time my 5 yr old son hits himself in the face hard with his fist. He only does this when he is tired. And sometimes he will bang his face on his pillow and blanket when he's sleepy. I don't know how to get him to stop. He isn't angry or pitching a fit. He just does it to go to sleep... Should I be worried?

He is in daycare and they make them take naps. He didn't turn 5 until Dec 16. He can't go to school because his birthday came to late

Why is your 5 year old still having nap times during the day? I'd be asking that question - really, by this age he should be past nap times.
