My 16mnth old keeps hitting her self whenever she gets mad what do i do?

My son did that from about13-16 months. He would have tantrums and hit his head on walls doors, tables, the oven ect.. so I told the doctor and I was told as long as he wasn't doing it hard enough to actually harm himself then its nothing to worry about. Eventually he figured out that it hurt when he did it and stopped, now he barely has tantrums. SO it might be a phase but if you think shes actually doing some harm or hitting her head hard enough to cause internal swelling you should bring it up with her doctor right away. BUT if its just silly tantrums don't worry it should be over soon!
