  • Ignore him. He is not hurt. He is trying to get your attention.

  • My 3-ear-old does this too. I warn him once that he is in time out and will stay there until he is calm, and if he keeps screaming, I ignore him. (And if he gets out of time out, he gets put back in without any more words from me.) The screaming eventually stops.
