My son is 7 months old and is learning well how to throw a fit. If he doesn't get his way he will scream and do a fake cry. Is there anyway to really correct him at this age to try to stop the fit? I have tried distractions and sometimes it works but a lot of times he still screams.Answer Question

Ignore him, make sure he is in a place where he can't hurt himself and let him get it out without you, the more you respond to the "fit" the more you are teaching him that it is a good way to get attention. And i know from experience the older they are the harder it is to eliminate this kind of behaviour.
