  • She's not to young to start using the time out chair. My friend used this and so have I. Though she's still young I would try distracting her first, if that doesn't work then by all means time out. If she won't sit in the chair just keep placing her back in it.

  • I'm not against crying it out.. She needs to learn that she can't have everything she wants..

  • My kids never did that for long. The key is to remember that kids at this age are very frustrated because they can't communicate the way they would like. One great way to get them not to scream is to show them some basic signs. You ask them you want more and do the sign at the same time.

  • record her with a tape recorder and play it back to her and just keep playing it to her until she stops

  • Wait she finishes the screaming then tell her you don't understand it , and she wont' get her way because she scream. I always tell my children, big boys don't scream their way out. Not working.

  • The best thing to do is ignore her and let her cry it out. It's hard as a mom to listen to your child but she has to know that that method is not going to work. She's starting early with the testing stage. Remember not to scream back even though you want to I'm sure.
