My 17 month old son has a bad habit of suddenly screaming for no apparent reason. He's been doing this for almost a year now. He will be playing along quietly & then suddenly scream at the top of his lungs at such a high pitch, it literally hurts my ears. He's devenopmentally normal & the doctor thinks he's just spoiled so I thought I would ask some of you moms if you have gone through this & what you found to get them to stop this bad habit. All I've been told by the "old" moms in my life is to pop him on the mouth when he does this but I would never do that & it just makes me cringe. Any suggestions?
