Hey moms, my son will be 2 next month and when he gets mad about something he will headbutt whatever is right there. The floor, walls, his brother, me anything. It doesn't have to be something he's like downright pissed off about, it's anything. Even if he's just a little annoyed. My older son never did this and neither did any of my 7 nieces or nephews. I just am not sure why he would do this and if it is something i should be worrying about. Or if it's just a 2 year old temper tantrum. He doesn't do it to the point where he makes himself bleed or gives himself bruises or anything but he has gotten some bumps from doing it. Have any other moms gone through this with your child?

It is really hard to watch. And like you i can't make him stop. It's so frustrating. Thanks though. It's good to know that someone knows how i'm feeling.

my 2 year old twins do the same thing but I haven't been able to stop them so far. I talked to my doctor and said as long as they are not seriously hurting themselves it's not something to worry about. it is just a temper tantrum and it's their way of showing their anger. She also said there really isn't a way to get them to stop. I hope I have helped. I know its frustrating and hard to watch It happen.
