I have a 22 month old son as of today and instaed of him using his words (which I have heard him say before) he screams everything. He does ALOT of babbling but most of the time you can't understand what he is saying. If he wants something he will just scream and point at it. HELP???

I had a friend whose daughter spoke kitten and everything she said was fit in a meow voice (on purpose she wanted to be a kitten). My friend was complaining about it to me one day and her daughter came over and asked me for a cookie. I told her, "I don't speak kitten you will need to talk human" she quickly said, "may I have a cookie?" I told her yes and let her know I thought she had a pretty voice. Her mom couldn't believe it. She told her daughter the same thing later that night when they were home. She called me later and told me, "no more kitten voice!"
Tell him you don't understand "loud" voice.

I went through this with my daughter at about 20 months. One day I just got tired of it and had a standoff. We sat at the breakfast table for an hour until she finally used her words to tell me what she wanted. Hasn't been problem since. Good luck!
