Here's the big problem. She requests that she not hear them. Presently at home, Fizzy is silent unless he has a nightmare. I currently live in a studio apartment and there really is'nt any room for him to feel neglected or to lose his toys. But it's different at work where there is a ton of room to run around and lose his toys. He is constantly whining and if I choose to ignore whatever is currently killing him, like the loss of a toy or him feeling neglected, he starts screaming. It's ear piercing and I usually give in. I sometimes yell at him to be quiet, which has no effect, so I just give into whatever he wants.
I know I should'nt yell at him. I know I should'nt give in. Anyway, just in case anyone can offer any advice on how to keep him quiet, I'd really appreciate it. My concern is that the basement is very large, and I'm expecting to have to spend a lot of time upstairs, with my mother.
Also, I plan on x-posting this concern elsewhere. If anyone has any suggestion of a good community to ask about this in, please let me know.
