He Is Hitting Himself

So my son just started hitting himself on purpose and saying "ow". I don't know if he thinks it is funny or what. Has this happened to anyone else? It sort of freaks me out, because he hits himself open handed across the eye and forehead.

My ds1 also hurts himself for the fun of it. He thinks its hilarious and most of the time will look to me for a reaction afterwards. If I just ignore it he stops soon after. He doesn't slap himself but hits his head against the wall. I am pretty sure its a phase and will pa__s...we also have to expect this sort of thing from boys.

Sounds like he's just doing it for your reaction. My daughter did this briefly but by ignoring it completely she stopped within a couple of days (once I had the good sense to ignore it). When she was about 9 months old she learnt how to make a gasping breath when she inhaled which also got great reactions from mummy. Once someone pointed out that she was just doing it for the reaction it took 2 days of ignoring it for it to completely vanish.
