Laurean's Insights

Your toddler’s voice may be music to your ears, but when it is screaming, it sounds more like a five-alarm fire. Screaming peaks between the age of 18 months and 2 and a half years, not as a deliberately annoying behavior, but because toddlers are trying out their voices to test the effect of their siren screams on their audience. 

TCF class on Tuesday, November 6th and Thursday, November 8th will help you put out these sparks and not fan the flames of screaming in your little one.
