I'm not talking about tantrum throwing here. When he's excited or just wants a little attention he lets out this blood curdling ear piercing painful-as-all-hell SQUEAL! I've walked out of public places before because of it - it's embarassing and - did I mention - PAINFUL. I've tried ignoring it, telling/asking him to stop, accidentally on occasion raising my own voice which not only makes me feel awful but I know only encourages him to be louder... I've tried making calm/silly/happy sounds with my own mouth in hopes he'll mimic THAT instead. Which he does, temporarily.
He's 13 months old and has been doing this since he was maybe 5 or 6 months. It's awful and I NEED to get him to stop! I've talked to a handful of moms and they all say they understand - until they hear it. What works bests to break habits like these, aside from god sent patience??
