My daughter is almost 4 and for as long as we can remember, she has been doing these high pitched squeals. sometimes its bearable, but in the shops it feels like someone turns off all the lights, except the spotlight pointed directly on us. We have tried sitting her down and talking to her about it, but it doesn’t help.

  • My daughter has just started this at 2.5 she does it mostly in open spaces like underground car parks , shopping centres. She is testing out her voice. We don’t encourage it


  • It does seems to be a normal thing… my daughter did it and now my grand daughter has just started doing it (she is two).


  • I have boys so this didn’t happen at all and my sister has girls and her girls didn’t either so I don’t think it is normal.


  • I thought the same as the other ladies. I have heard a lot of little girls around this age doing this sort of thing, especially in shopping centres where their squeals seem to echo and resonate.


  • my daughter does it too shes prob just testing her voice out


  • most girls do this.. .


  • Oh the joys, my daughter does the same, hopefully they grow out of it soon!


  • oh ok..emmm. Worst comes to worst a light punishment?
