I am in need of some great advice! My 18 month old has a horrible temper. I could deal with screaming and throwing, but my poor lil man is a headbanger. Literally. When he is upset he bangs his head on the floor and our floors are as hard as concrete. Its like he can't feel it, he does it over and over! I try to catch him before he does it because obviously I don't want him to hurt himself but he is very quick about it. I just dunno wha to do. I have tried restraining him through the fit, holding him on my lap so he can't move much, tried distracting him, tried saying " no, we don't hurt ourselves"... I'm at a loss. I am thinking of getting a pack and play again and putting him in it for fits so he can't hurt himself anymore. What would you do? I just feel so bad.
