View Full Version : Yelling very loudly
My DD has started a new tantrum.She is 19 months old .Whenever I ask her not to do something she yells at the top of her voice over me as she doesn't speak much.
How should I tell her not to do something or behave without she yelling at me?
Maybe... tell her in a firm voice (not yelling) that you dont like yelling and that you wont listen to it. Then dont give her any more attention. My guess is that she gets a reaction so she keeps doing it. Mind you, I'm not an expert!! I hope you get a few more suggestions!!
We didn't have screaming but DD did test us with what she could and couldn't do. Often just shouting no back at me. A calm but stern voice has worked well. I noticed that when my husband told her not to do something she immediately repented and listened to him. We call it his "big" voice. Not at all loud but it's obvious he's not happy and means business. So I do my best imitation of his tone!
At that age, distraction also still works. Remove the offending item from your daughter, or remove her from whatever she's getting into, and try to get her interested in something else. My daughter is just going on 2 and this has worked for us for a long time. At first we still get a sulky "no" when we offer an alternative game or activity, but it quickly turns to a yes if we suggest a particular favorite that she doesn't get too often (like playdoh!).
Also, if she's not talking very much then she's probably getting frustrated in not being able to tell you what she wants. I've heard some people make up a picture board, with pictures and the words for some basic things like milk, water, biscuit, toast, apple, ball, certain toys, etc. That way she can have the option of pointing to what she wants and be active in finding an alternative activity.
Thanx to both of u for ur encouraging replies.
I hope she behaves well when i implements these behaviours.
Once aain thank u
