omg - please someone help. Hazel has been screaaaaaaaming these blood-curdling screams at the top of her lungs all day. I can't take it and DH is going batty! Does anyone else's toddler do this? Is there a way to combat it? Uggggh.
play screaming. and then if you try to move her or have her do anything other than what she wants it becomes tantrum screaming! she came to my job today and literally stood in the middle of the lawn and screeeeeeamed over and over. i don't know what's gotten into her, but it better get out of her fast.
Hmm. Since it's play screaming I have no idea. Amber screams like that only when she's upset, and so she gets a time out. She screams out of anger/frustration when she's in her time out but as soon as she's taken out, she's 100% better!

Oh ugh!!!!! Ava's done that only 1-2 times...........her thing is to "test" her voice when we're in the garage or in a public bathroom to hear her "echo."
I hope this is only a one-day thing for her!!!
Jehan normally screams like that when he's upset as well and he wont stop until we give him some TLC or ignore him. LOL. He has done it a few times for play purposes but it doesnt last that long. I hope little Hazel gets over the play screaming soon.
Oy. I hope it's short lived! Thatcher has done that a couple times, and both times were short-lived. I think one time lasted part of a day, and another time he did it off and on for a couple days. I assume he was just testing out his voice... kind of like when they first learn how to make raspberries and they do it alllll the time.
I don't have any suggestions other than waiting it out, but if it lasts for more than a couple days, then I would probably buckle down with the time outs.
Connor did this most of the afternoon today. He definitely wasn't upset/angry/frustrated. He was happy and smiling . . . and screaming! It was so not a good day for this. We had a bad storm that knocked out our power for 3-4 hrs. So we were stuck in the house with no power, which meant no music (he loves music!) and we couldn't play outside due to the weather -- I was going stir crazy. Hope tomorrow is better for both of us!
