DD has just turned tow and produces the most piercing screams I have ever heard. DD1 was never a screamer so I'm not sure how normal this is, or not! SHe has a slight expressive speech delay, so I have no doubt that some of it comes from frustration, but even when she laughs, she often also screams, and she does it for attention often. is ther a way to stop it? i just usually say - no thank you, no screaming, or i ignore it, but it's doing my head in!
