  • my kid only screams when he gets grumpy, so we know that if hes acting like that then he is hungry or tired or hurt. as for the selective hearing, well, i guess it depends on his mood. im sorry, but i really dont know what to do, i would suggest bringing it up at a dr appt, neither of my kids were like that so i dont know. his dr might be able to give u some pointers on what to do.

  • This sounds just like my two year old and when he starts acting like this I normally try distracting him with a book and before we know it he's asleep.

  • First, when he whines, tell him you will not answer him until he stops whining. Second, if he screams, put him in time out. Keep putting him there until he understands you mean business even if that's all you do all day long. It may be frustrating for you but it will payoff one day.
