  • He is screaming because it is getting your attention. I know this is hard but if you use a calm voice - tell him you will talk to him when he stops screaming and then walk away! It will take a few tries but eventually he will get the idea that the screaming is NOT going to work to get attention. Hope this helps!

  • how many months is he? i wouldnt deal with a 12 month old the same as a 20 month old even though they are both one.
