My just turned two year old has been high pitched screaming, for pleasure!! for a couple of weeks now. I ignore it...he gets no positive or negative attention from me when he does it. But it is ear piercing! I figure he is just testing out his vocals and as he gets older and comprehends more I will start to teach him to distinguish between quiet and loud voices and inside and outside volume!! He loves to do it in the shower and in his cot before going to sleep!! all annoying phases, it couldn't possibly last forever, could it????

OMG yes, I have a boy that can scream. If some one trys to take something from him you will no. If someone he dont no talks to him or trys to pick him up he screams and it is not quiet. We call it the ethan alarm when we hear it we no that someone is near he that he dont want there. It is great, hope it passes soon. It makes my head hurt.

It's annoying. AND - it's a phase. It's a phase that will likely pass within the year if you don't make a big deal about it. As they get on nearer to their 3s you can probably start reinforcing positive behaviours. I would start that too soon though because their verbal comprenhension level has to be there before you can start any kind of explanation.
