    Default Damn beauty and the geek. How do I get dd out of this behavior now?

    We watch beauty and the geek (I know, dont judge me. lol)

    Anyway since dd (19 months) has watched bits of it she wont STOP SCREAMING!! Really high pitched screaming alllllllll. The. Time. She is happy when she does it too, not just for tantrums. But out at the shops its getting reaally embarrassing carting a really loud screaming toddler around.

    Im going to stop watching my fav show so she wont do it more but wjat else can I do. Its driving me insane. Oh and we live in an apartment complex. My neighbours have commented before that they hear her screaming (and it has gotten worse since the neighbours mentioned it) its more frequent and louder now. Before it was only late at night.

    Oh. I see how people can be confused. There was one episode in particular that the girls just kept screaming. Dd never used to do that scream until we watched that episode and was copying them. And ever since its been screaming all the time.

    Sorry no idea on the screaming but as it's on at night why can't you still watch it? Isn't she in bed?

    I have found that squealing, especially high pitched squealing at the worst possible time, is pretty common around that age. DS did it, my friends babies did it, the kids at swimming do it etc.

    So, although Beauty and the Geek might have kick started her and shown her she coukd make that noise, it's pretty normal iykwim.

    To be honest the only thing that worked for us was ignoring it completely. Ds loved the reaction we gave him when he squealed. We also taught him to snort, like a pig noise. Sounds funny but it was a way less obnoxious noise and once he started snorting he stoooed squealing. Ha ha.

    Now at 2 he doesn't make either noise.

    Ds2 is doing this at the moment.
    But it's more of a protest when we stop playing. Our if his brother doesn't say hello when he gets home from school.
    I don't know how to stop it but I like the idea of teaching a different noise. Might try that.

    Got it. Lol.
    Most children scream at some stage. It's really normal. They figure out they can do it and like the sound of it. It's like a new toy. She will eventually stop.

    Maybe look a bit sad cover ears and say " ouch".

    Whether she saw that show or not, it was bound to happen. My DS3 is 19 months and has been doing the same scream for a couple of weeks now. Drives me effing batty!

    It's just a new thing that he discovered and all my others did it too, it should stop in a few weeks, until then, buy some ear plugs for you AND the neighbours

    Most kids go through this stage. With dd I just walked away and didnt react then I started putting my hands over my ears and gently saying that noise hurts mummy's ears and she eventually stopped
