I'm worried about my one year old, Hailey. See, she is really spoiled and usually throws temper tantrums when she can't have her way, even if its something stupid like I won't let her press buttons on my cell phone. Now before when this would happen, she would lash out at me and throw things and get generally pissy, which I expected. But lately, she has started hurting herself. Like just now, I stopped her from playing with the printer and she sat down and started tugging at her clothes and hitting her legs.
I used to cut myself when I was younger, and it all started because I would slap myself or hit my thighs when I was upset. Then it turned to razors and lighters. I know that shit like that can be genetic, but I don't think its possible to start this young?
Its just really scary to see her hurting herself when I tell her no. And when she does do it, I stop her and usually comfort her, but the next time it happens again.
Did any of your kids do this?

Zoe does that. I think that it's normal for little kids, but I woiuld talk to her ped if you're unsure.
