ds is 17 month and not verbal at all -- he has 2 sings, but one of them (please) he has to be reminded to use.<br><br>
he loooooooooove with a passion to SCREAM and SCREECH. sometimes at me, cuz i can't read his mind, sometimes at a toy that doesn't read him mind, sometimes at being stopped from say jumping off a 5 foot drop, sometimes apperantly just for the joy of the noise (like when we are showering and he just screeches then laughs).<br><br>
I know part of it is the "lack of laungauge fustration" (believe me we BOTH feel it) .... but a part if it is jsut h e like to make the noise. Also I am sure part of it is expoloreing the noisexs he can make.<br><br>
but i can't take it any more. it is sooooooooooooooooo loud and he will hold a note for soooooooooooooooooooo long.<br><br>
HELP<br><br>
what do i do<br><br>
I try whispering to him, so he will whisper back -- nope screech and laugh<br><br>
i try pointing out " that is loud" he doesn;t care<br><br>
i do not know that to do but the screaming and screevching is really pushing me in a way no other behavior does.....<br><br>

He's loving, and lovable, and has a great disposition -- but is ahhh, TENACIOUS and like a homing pigeon who will just NOT be distracted from getting what he wants. Hopefully it'll pass as they have more words.<br><br>
We've done sign language with him and frankly, when he's aggravated, he is not interested in signing. He just wants to loudly and physically protest.

YES I didn't even think to add all that FUN we are having. espically the pinching of the boob.<br><br>
I don't get it Theo is so happy and so social and such a joy most of thetime. I won't say he is easy -- he got his own opinions for chirstams and i wish i could return them, but i have seen a lot "worse" -- he is gerenally easy enough to live with, and go and do things with. but then he gets "locked on to something" and uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh i have seen hunting dogs be more distractable. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Glad to know i am not alone<br><br>

These are just a few of the emotions I have had this morning. Your post is so funny! (especially he got his own opinions for christmas and I wish I could return them...I nearly woke the now-sleeping nursing toddler on my lap who almost bit my breast because I laughed so hard).<br><br>
That "lock-on target" thing can be a killer.<br><br>
Feel free to vent whenever! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

i love him sooooooooooo much<br><br>
and i am amazed daily at how much he learns and understands and all he does<br><br>
but i feel soooooooooooooooo ost with the screaming and screeching.<br><br>
I think i am a pretty good mom -- but i don't know what to do AND I get so frazzeled byt eh screeching -- i can't think.<br><br>
like just a minute ago --literally he is play at my feet, decided he wanted in my lap -- fine -- but he looked up, grabed my leg and Screeched -- ouch -- no lead up, i was not ignoreing him, or not responding, this was not a 3rd request or anything -- it was his first line of communitcation -- it was instant and loud ...............<br><br>
it just -- i don't have the word -- but really pushes my buttons -- espically seince i don't feel he is "useing it correctly" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> that is when he is not listened to, or when he is getting fustrated because i can't guess what he is wanting (<span style="text-decoration:underline;"><b>that</b></span> i'd not like, but could see or understand a little better) -- he jumps right to it.

I think its a phase, not that it makes it any easier but Olivia just started the same thing.... along with the pinching and biting. I think she likes the fact that she can make real loud noise all by herself. As for the pinching I have no idea, I usually try to redirect her but even that doesn't always work.
