    Default How to stop this screaming!

    My ds has began screaming - it's not a cry or discomfort. it's all out scream when he isn't allowed to have something, for attention, when he doesn't want something -and various other reasons. it's ear piercing and super loud. What can I do to stop this behaviour? I try the calm "no", the "no thank you" and ignoring. But he's only almost 15 months so i'm not sure how to discipline this. any suggestions?

    He starts to scream walk away, let me know you will talk to him when he is done. the more attention he gets when he screams he will continue to scream.

    I agree with this. I also think it's a stage. My DS went through it. The girls didn't as much because their vocabulary was pretty good at that age, and they were able to use their words a little more.

    I've had a few daycare kids that do this and it's terrible! I get down on their level and say “No screaming please. It hurts my ears.“ (Then cover my ears.) If they continue to scream after I ask them to stop a few times I walk away and ignore. If that still doesn't work I will put them in time out until they calm down. I continue to do this every time they scream and when they do remember to say something in a normal voice I make sure to respond immediately and thank them for using their inside voice.

    I remember when one of the girls on here's little one had fits, at one point she started doing the exact same thing he was doing. It shocked him and he stopped.
