My 3yo has developed a new protesting skill. When things don't go her way, she lets out a really, really painful shriek. I ask her to use words, and try and talk her through her frustration, "you really want to do xyz, and you're mad that we can't" she just shrieks again... I'm trying to turn a blind eye - er - ear. Anyone have any ideas, is this part of having a spirited 3yo girl? Ouch!!!

I don't have advice, but sympathy. My spirited 3yo does this too (I think she learned it at daycare) and it is AWFUL to me-I have super-sensitive hearing. I try to ignore it, but the problem is that eventually I snap and get mad.
