Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

How do i get my wonderful 3 1/2 old son to stop screaming.

I have a wonderful 3 1/2 year old son that I adore to the max. However he has a horrible trait that I wish was different. It started out occasional, but now he screams ALL THE TIME. (even when he has no reason to). How can I modify the behaior, so i can help him stop this screaming. I feel I've tried everything I can think of, but it hasn't cured him. My fear is that no school will take him, (when the time comes); because of this horrible habit. Please help... I need suggestions and guidance on this. Thank you. bbdmom, San Antonio, TX

When my son started screaming i'd tell him softly "no screaming, only inside voices. your screaming hurts my ears and i don't want to listen to it. Then i would put him in another room by himself and said he could come out when he was done and closed the door. He got the message after a few times and has not done it since. i hope this helps.
