My son will scream like someone is killing him if he doesn't get his way. He doesn't speak yet so reasoning with him won't work. He won't understand "time out". I've chosen to redirect his attention or let him scream and cry while comforting him but not giving him what he wants.

What do the rest of you mommies do? What has worked? What has backfired?

I used redirection and ignoring the behavior as well and had great success. I also started teaching my daughter sign language about 17 months old to help with communication.
