My 9 year old son used to punch himself in the face,when he would get a answer wrong at school,or something small to us
Before i had him diagnosed I used to tell him "Kyle"your teachers are going to think I beat you or expect you to be perfect,here it was part of it
My son would never hit anyone,just himself.
I finally got him to tell me why one day,and he said he feels he needs punished,for wrong answers,etc.....
I will tell you everything I did to get him to quit would not work,finally one day I told him every time you hit yourself,you are hurting GOD,instantly he quit,he has done a couple times here and there,but not daily
Good luck to you
