Toddler hits himself

My boy is 22 months and had started smacking himself in the face when he is told off or frustrated at his toys, is this a normal phase or something I should be worried about?

It's normal, they usually go they can this phase, he'll not be hurting himself, try to ignore it, if he doesn't get attention for it it'll pass, lol x

Thank you for your reply, yes I try not to pay any attention to it, it's so heartbreaking though.

So glad you asked this. My DD (19 months) does this too and it really bothers me!

It's awful, he full on slaps himself in the face with both hands and also hits his head on the floor or the wall 😰
