My grand daughter screams a short very high pitched blood curdling scream many times during the course of the day. She is an only child and gets a lot of attention. She has a very good mother and father. She does it because she knows it gets her attention. It is painful to the ears. I am grandmother and I feel like it will cause hearing loss. She does it even when being held, during diaper changes, or just because she wants attention. I am looking for ideas to curb this behavior in a 13 month old. Mom asked the Dr. but he had no help for her. Thanks in advance.
