7 year hits herself

(3 Posts)

My dd is 7 and when she gets told off, gets told no or when she loses a game she hits herself. Usually on her leg sometimes her head. It sounds to me like she's doing it quite hard but she hasn't left any marks on herself and hasn't cried from hurting herself and I've asked her why she does it but I don't think she really knows. Is this normal behaviour?

I don't think its hugely unusual but its not a good reaction and definitely needs to be addressed ASAP. What do you do when it happens?

I usually try to ignore it or I just say to her she shouldn't do it because she might hurt herself. She gets very hyper where she becomes completely oblivious to those around her and I've been asked before if she has been tested for ADHD. I just wondered if this was maybe connected to something like that going by her other behaviours although she doesn't do it at school.
