My son makes all these yelling, screeching, and growling noises and my mom (his primary caregiver Monday through Friday) HATES IT. She is fed up and insists on finding a solution to keeping him from the noises. She is currently enrolled in college courses and is having a hard time getting any homework done when he is being so loud.

I have to agree with the other ladies and I am working with kids too. At this age up until even three sometimes they like to hear themselves get loud and soft. Sound plays an important role during development. When I read them stories for example, I change my tones, pitch, how loud or soft, and so on to go with the story and they eat it up. I also use facial expressions too. If that were put into the routine during story time it might help them to start to understand when its appropriate to be loud and quiet. I also have times that I allow them to get loud when at play and I am also joining in with them. Even songs can be used to allow for expression in loud and quiet voices.

If she runs a daycare she should understand that his behavior is perfectly normal and she has to teach him about inside voices... but not expect great results for a while.

Well, that's a little different situation, then. But, like Andrea said, he's about at that vocal stage, where he's experimenting with sound. You and mom just need to be consistent. He needs to be corrected consistently, reminded to use his inside voice, and his words.

Good luck with getting done with school!

Sorry I miss read your post.. That is great your mom and dad want to make sure you finish school and are willing to help you.. Nope not much you really can do other then say no no, not so loud, inside voice... They out grow it, this is just a stage of finding his little voice and learning to use it.. The biggest thing is just telling him shhh inside voice...

He will be 1 on March 1st. I am currently still in college and my parents insisted that I finish schooling where I started. Therefore, I am going to school 2 hours away from home and live on campus. I drive home every friday afternoon and spend the entire weekend just me and baby, then I drive the two hours back to school every monday morning in time for class. It's not my mom that I am asking for advice on. I would like to know if there is a way to stop my son from screeching ALL the time. As far as socialization, he gets plenty of that. My mom runs a daycare and she has 4 kids about 2 and under.

I agree with Shawnn.. My 13 month old has been going through this for the last 2 or 3 months.. His older brother {6} and older sister {5} think and thought it was cute for him to do this till it comes to dinner time and he is doing these things at the table... Then they say not so funny mommy...
But yes if it bothering your caregiver I would say it is time to look for another. It is hard when having family be the primary caregiver as it can start to hurt the relationship between you and them..
It is a sound thing and they do move on from it after awhile. Then they start the stage of WHY, HOW COME, WHAT FOR stage... I look forward to enjoying all of these stages to the fullest... I am finding it fun to watch my youngest and older 2 learn from each other, even if the older ones like to talk for the little one.. It all gets better in time...

How old? There IS a phase that they go through where they experiment A LOT with sound. Perhaps it is time to find a different caregiver situation where he can socialize with kids his own age. Is he on the Autism spectrum? If so, is he verbal, or non verbal? That makes a difference as well...

And, I'm fairly certain that your mother could find other times to do her homework, surely she doesn't keep him 24 hours a day, correct?

If your mother is unhappy caring for him, it will communicate itself to him, and his behaviour could worsen. If he's an average kiddo, verbal, able to communicate in a normal fashion for his age, then that does need to be encouraged, but generally, if he's a little guy, and into the 'sound' phase, he'll get over it on his own.
