20 month old : yelling for attention


Our 20 month old son frequently yells for attention. Not because he actually needs or wants something, other than our attention, and when he gets it he is content. I am not sure how to deal with this behavior. Ignoring it doesn't work; he just persists. My husband wants to yell "NO!" and make an impression, which I don't think is a good idea, yelling at our son to teach him not to yell. My husband then asks, "well, what would Rosemond say to do?" since he knows I am a fan of your parenting methods. So, I am asking. How should we deal with this particular behavior? It is getting quite out of hand.
