Response to screaming

My daughter is 13, and nonverbal. Lately she has been screaming in my ear when she doesn't get her way, or doesn't get what she wants immediately. Have any of you dealt with this?

My daughter picked up on a not so nice phrase last year (WTF). She used to occasionally say this in context whenever something wasn't working right, TV, toy etc. She would say it out of frustration.

Sibling Question

Now that our son has been diagnosed with autism, the question on whether or not to have more kids has come up. We had always talked about havibg 2-3 kids but now we're not so sure. I know this is a personal decision but I'd like some opinions on the matter for reference.
