I have posted before that my DD is quite loud in all ways. It has only grown worse the last few weeks and I don't know what to do. If she stubs her toe, she screams like she is dying (earsplitting volume). If the baby looks at her toys she screams. When something goes wrong she screams. And she won't stop with a single scream. I've had to send her to her room just about every day more than once for two weeks for incessant screaming with the instructions that she can come back out when she is done screaming. She'll scream in her room for at least five minutes but sometimes twenty minutes or more.
I am sure that some of this is because I am fairly ill right now. I can't leave the house by myself with the kids currently. I am also very sun sensitive and sunscreen irritates my skin (think burning sensations and hives) so we haven't been doing all the things that we would normally do in nice weather.
What can I do to help my DD process things in a calmer manner? Please tell me that this, too, shall pass.
