I agree with kaycee14. I would just love on that child til he couldn't stand it no more. Otherwise, he reverts to obnoxious behaviors, like the screaming in the crib. I bet it would be easier to just have him sit at the table and do "his work" while the kids do theirs. Include him more, not less. I could not tolerate a screaming/crying child, ever, and never will. I believe in indulging the child in attention when you can, and setting boundaries when necessary, like the homework example. good luck!
