She screams when she's happy, mad, bored, so it isn't a specific mood. I'm sure she's trying out her vocal cords, but it's a high pitched shriek, we can't even take her out most of the time. We've tried ignoring it, telling her "No" in a firm voice (she just smiles). I obviously wont punish her if she's expressing herself; it isn't a tantrum, but it has to stop. How can I gently encourage her to stop screaming like that?
