Fellow parents, how do you deal kindly and lovingly with a toddler who is doing something that has to stop? (So I can't just ignore him until he stops doing the behavior.) For example, today C started screaming this constant, shrill yell about two feet outside of N's door while she was napping. It sort of rings out throughout the entire house and nothing I do can get him to quit, from hugs to consequences to yelling myself -- he just screams and screams, and the baby wakes up and then *she* screams... I find myself getting really negative, because it doesn't matter to him if he wakes N up, but it matters to me because I lose the time I had to shower, eat, work, etc.
How would you deal with this?
