In brief: Shaken Baby Syndrome
The can be many reasons why someone might behave in such a manner. Poor impulse control, substance abuse, and underlying mental health issues are near the top of my list.
But even the effects of stress and being overwhelmed in an otherwise good parent can be a result.
