Re: How can i stop my 1 year old from hurting herself
This is going to sound bad.
I think I would cut her hair, so she cant get a grip on it. The temper tantrum is probably a phase. If its not, I am unqualified to advise. And if it is, there a lot of strategies you can use
But if it is, you will just take away the thing that you are reacting the most to (understandably). Which is her goal. Besides it could be harmful at the least, painful.
Let her wear cute hats for a little while. And hopefully by the time it grows back to pulling length she will have moved on to the next thing that horrifies you. Like eating sand, or playing in the kitty litter.
Hang in there I know its tough. My DD is Autistic and we have similar situations happening at 7 yrs old.
