Our daughter is 21 months old and the third child, with two older brothers. She has developed a pattern that involves incredibly loud screeching and screaming. She does this in protest of whatever’s happening to her that she doesn’t like. Her brothers never screamed to this extent and I’ve not witnessed any other children with an epic protest screech like hers. We are thinking she will stop when she develops better language for communication, however, we cannot let this offensive sound continue as often as it does. We have begun to put her in her cot when she very deliberately screams after being told not to. She calms down and then we get her out again. I’m wanting to hear from other mums who have experienced this type of behaviour and how you dealt with it.
