My son is 15 months and he screams all the time! I've tried ignoring him (he screams more!), I've tried time out (he cries while he's there, then will scream again once I take him out!) I've tried putting my hand over his mouth! lol. I feel like I've tried almost everything! It's so frustrating and embarrassing when we're out in public. Just wondering if anyone elses kids have done the same, and how did you deal with it?

Scream back. Seriously. When you start screaming back they think it's funny and they stop screaming and start laughing. That's when you say "See? Pretty silly to be screaming all the time, isn't it? I can understand you much better when you talk."
