My son and daughter both did this. Once my son hit his head on a hard surface he didn't hurt himself but he did have a red mark on his head, when he realized it hurt he stopped. My daughter just grew out of it when she learned to throw herself on the ground. I am not saying let your child hurt himself but when he realizes it hurts he might stop.

how old is your son? my daughter did this around 10 months and i couldnt stop her. I would just make sure she was in a safe area that she couldnt get hurt doing it and let her go. I paid no attention during this tantrum and gradually it stopped. If you yell or give them any tyoe of attention he will keep doing to get a reaction from you
