How can you burst an eardrum?

Too much pressure can rupture an eardrum. For example, I ruptured my brother's eardrum many years ago with one of those pool noodles. We were fighting with them in the pool and I smacked him in the side of the head with it. The force of impact directly over his ear created enough pressure inside of his ear cavity to actually rupture his eardrum. Another thing that can rupture/burst an eardrum is simply sticking something that doesn't belong inside of your ear too deep, physically puncturing the eardrum. Although eardrums can burst, they can also heal. However, the older you get, the more difficult it becomes for your body to repair an eardrum.

Can the piercing scream of a small child rupture an adult's eardrum?

No - although it may sometimes feel like your eardrums are on the threshold of rupturing... It requires 178 dB (decibels) minimum to rupture a healthy eardrum (usually more). A baby's cry is around 115 -130 decibels at a distance of ~5" (about 10 cm) from the baby's mouth so it may be painful but it won't rupture your eardrum. Note that a sustained level of about 95 dB can eventually lead to some hearing loss - but most babies can't sustain their crying long enough to cause that kind of damage. On the other hand 125 dB is the threshold where sound starts getting painful - a loud baby can definitely reach that threshold. Permanent hearing loss from a single exposure or maybe just short term exposure take about 140 dB - which no baby is going to generate (dB is a logarithmic scale).
