The week’s best parenting advice: December 7, 2021

Toddlers scream for a lot of different reasons — attention, frustration, excitement, you name it. Unfortunately, screaming back will only make things worse, writes Sarah Showfety in Lifehacker. But there are some steps you can take to help children learn to manage their voice, such as letting them practice singing songs at different volumes, or seeing who can “whisper the best.” Another tactic is to interpret “inside voice” literally and accompany your toddler outside whenever they scream, saying something along the lines of, “Oh, you want to use your outside voice? Let’s go outside so you can scream.” Regardless of what emotion is driving the screaming, speaking to them at eye level and validating what they’re feeling is always a good idea. And while the standard advice is not to give in to a screaming toddler’s demands, it may be worth acquiescing if they manage to repeat their request in a “nice voice.”
