I am at my wits end and our OT didn't have any good suggestions either.
Has anyone had to deal with head banging? DS has always been a head banger (he also hits himself and bites himself when he is mad) but will bang his head to get out of his room at nap time/bed time. We have been told by both our therapist and our pedi to walk away and he normally stops. The longest we will let him go is 30-40 minutes of crying.
Well now he his himself so hard that he has broken skin.
I don't know what to do. We need with our Pedi on the 3rd, but we have tried spanking, ignoring, redirecting, giving him a safe place to bang his head and just about everything else I can think of.
I know I shouldn't worry about it, but seeing blood everywhere because he is hitting his head not not feeling the pain freaks me the heck out.
Anyone have any advice?!
