Why does my child bang his head to go to sleep at night?
    
It is common for some children to bang their heads on the crib to fall asleep. This is a way some children soothe themselves to sleep. This is harmless, will not cause brain damage, and the child will outgrow it in time. All you need to do is to protect your child from possible skin bruises. Try extra padding to all parts of the crib. Another bedtime habit is when a child rocks themselves to sleep. Other children bang their heads when they are upset about not getting something they want. This type of head banging is better known as "emotional terrorism" since few parents can ignore this behavior. The youngster quickly learns to use the head banging to get the response they want. Therefore, giving into this form of head banging will only reinforce the behavior. As hard as it may seem, parents need to ignore the head banging as they should any other tantrum.
