I was reading this in desperate need of help with my 15 mo old daughter. I've been trying the reasoning with her saying "I understand you're frustrated because _____ , but screaming isn't nice. We DON'T scream". We've never started time out - actually about an hour ago I tried to give her time out in the corner for screaming because she kept getting into the dirty dishes daddy was putting in the dishwasher and when I'd take her away she'd scream that blood curdling scream. When I put her in the corner she didn't really seem to realize it was time out. Is she too young?
What do I do? She doesn't really scream but for a few seconds as I take her away but she's been doing it every time I lift her today, it seems.
(btw I'm sorry if you read this already - I posted this as an answer to someone else's question from last year!) :D
