  • Don't respond to the scream until they have stopped the screaming. Do not give in right away. Speak firmly, and let them know that if they want your attention, they do not need to act that way to get it...The more you ignore that type of behavior the quicker it will go away. Good Luck.

    P.S. I did have the same problem with my daughter and that is how I handled it...

  • I agree. If you respond to it they will keep doing it because it works.
