It is very disturbing to see your child hit themselves out of frustration. The best way to deal with that is to try to circumvent the behavior before it starts. If you know your child is prone to frustration then it is time to really work on patience. You can do things like let them help you cook so they can learn to wait for things to be ready. You can have them stand in lines with you so they learn to be patient. In whatever way you can help them to the goal should be to teach them not to become so overwhlemed that they hit themselves.
