Does your child do this? How can I get it to stop?
My DD will be 3 in May. For the past couple months or so, whenever she gets really mad or upset, she will pinch her arms and legs, which results in little redmarks/bruises. I think it looks horrible, but that's besides the point. I asked her ped about it (she used to bang her head against the wall too) and he said when it hurts her, she'll stop. But I don't know if there is something I can do to get it to stop? Obviously I can't please her all the time, but if I tell her she can't do something (like watch TV or something) she'll be mad and clench her fists, and then start pinching. Is this just something I have to learn to deal with, and she'll outgrow?
