  • Because...IDK...I would like to know too. Maybe it's because it gets a reaction?

  • Well my teens do this too, and they are really crazy loud. Because they are bigger it is that much louder.

  • I also think its for the reaction they get my 2 and 4 yr old do it and it drives me crazy. Sometimes if I dont respond they quit after a minute, the more I respond to what their doing the longer they do it.

  • Try having a screaming contest, or better yet scream with them. But its just one of those things just about every kid does, and the ones that don't I think are weird LOL. It does get bothersome at times, but just go in the other room. Right now my 17 month old is discovering his voice and this is his favorite part of it.....screaming. He does it when he wants something he does it when he wants you to move or he can't see past you he does it when you aren't paying attention to him. What we've done with all of my kids when they don't stop is shove your finger in their mouth and press down their tongue. With 3 kids I've only been bit once LOL Don't gag them or anything, but they need their tongue to scream and if its pressed down they can't. They don't like it very much but it usually gets the point across LOL

  • Victoria does it because she knows it will get a reaction out of her daddy and me. When I have had enough of her being so loud and screaming, I will look at her and just all of a sudden start talking really loud to her or screaming with her, if she is screaming. She looks at me like I am nuts
