Screaming for a reason
Some children scream or shriek loudly and often throughout the day. Telling a child to use an inside voice won’t change the behavior. Yelling at your child won’t stop his yelling either. Determine when the screaming usually occurs and track down triggers. If it happens any time throughout the day whenever your child doesn’t get his way, then probably the screaming is behavioral and can be managed with redirection a careful behavior plan that everyone follows. If, however, your child screams throughout the day, at any time, for no apparent reason, then perhaps high frustration, anxiety, lack of verbal skills or sensory issues are the root cause. Never let anything go, explaining it away as a phase. Always address each behavior with thought and care. Read the full article “Child’s screaming may be linked to a sensory issue”.
