  • lol my daughter is a screamer too.. wen she was like 1 she would scream bloody murder when i was washing her hair, if the tiniest bit of water touched her face it was OVER! so i just told the neighbors if it sounds like im beating her shes probly just getin a bath... but for the most part she will grow out of it.. mines 3 now and still likes to throw a scream in here and there.

  • My 2 1/2 year old is a screamer too. I very calmly tell her that I understand that she is upset/angry/frustrated (whatever fits thesituation) but if she wants to scream, it needs to be done in her room. Sometimes I have to physically take her there, other times she'll run there on her own. Then when she's over it, she'll come out and hug me and we'll continue on with our day.
