I have a 22 almost 23 month old daughter that hits her head when she is upset or even angry. I have taken her to the doctors and they tell me that it is the tarrable 2's coming in but i have tried everything to get her to stop. i have tried holding her and she just pushes me away. I have tried telling her not to do that, you will hurt yourself, she just does it more. I dont know what to do. I feel like i am letting her down because I cant figure out what i should do to stop her. The doctor says to let her have her little tantrum but her father and I are worried that she will hurt herself or that she may have Autism. Her older brother has Autism and her father and I are worried that she may have it too. What can I do to help her show her emotions in a more safe way then she is but hitting herself in the head? Please help a mother and father!!!!!!
