My son has a bad habbit of hitting his head any way he can when he gets mad....is this normal?

Can he speak words? He may just be frustrated that he cannot get you to understand him. The thing to do when he has these moments is try and calmly ask him what he wants and encourage him to use his words. Reading to him at night as well as making him read aloud will help him to build the vocabulary necessary to relate his feelings to you. Don't get mad and make sure he knows that hitting himself is "not OK".
you can also try and teach him a few words in sigh language since kids pick these up faster than spoken words. Milk, Ice, Hurt, mad, etc, might help him to get over his frustration.

You're very welcome. I also asked a friend (who works with children) about this and she gave me this link.


Aha!Parenting is a good site to look up for this and other issues.

Good luck and best wishes
