I'm not familiar with the "scream out" method and I raised 4 children who are now adults. Do you mean just letting him run his course screaming without you doing anything? If that doesn't work, try putting him in time out. But, be prepared, that you will probably have to put him back in his time-out chair or place numerous times before he gives in and stays there. He won't understand right away what you are doing, but as long as you stick with it, he should catch on. If that doesn't work, I really don't believe in spanking unless it is absolutely necessary, but every child is different. Maybe a good spanking on his butt will help.
