Screeching Sounds

My six-month old learned this evil screeching sound from her older cousin (eight months). How can I get it to go away without breaking her spirit to talk and coo?

It will go away on it's own most likely. My son is always learning new crazy noises but they usually seem to last only a few weeks and then he moves on to something new. Try teaching him some other less evil sound. Just do it all the time with lots of smiles and laughs and she might pick it up. Don't worry - I'm sure she is not really evil :)

My daughter went through a screaming phase...she sounded like a horror film! It was blood curdling! I know it's hard to do, but the only thing that seemed to help us was ignoring it. If someone reacted to it, she would keep doing it. So after a while of ignoring it she just stopped. It was no fun if no one cared. I hope it goes as well for you! Good luck!! :0)
