  • I dont think there is anything you can do. You could take her to a doctor. But that might just be her voice.

  • Hey Neighbor, I was looking at your profile and noticed that we are geographically close...I am in GJ. It is always nice to see people from around here!

    Anyway to answer your question, sometimes it is just their way to speak in higher pitch voices, hopefully she will out grow it, but I don't think there is much to do about it.

  • Nothing. Its normal.

  • Boy? Girl? Either way puberty probably hasn't set in yet so I'm not sure what you really expect...the kid is not an adult so don't expect an adult voice.

  • Nothing. If it is being done on purpose, ignore it until he/she talks nicely.

  • Not much you can do. If it continues you can have a dr. look at it. (As a side note it reminds me of the book A Prayer for Owen Meaney)

  • Is it a boy or girl? At 11 it's still possible that puberty hasn't fully set in. Alot of guys I know didn't have their voice change until 13, 14 and some even 15. My bf's little brother is 16 and just within the last year has his voice started changing and getting deeper.

    Same if it's a girl, Some people just have naturally higher pitched voices. You never know if you're truly concerned ask their doctor. But if it were me I wouldn't worry about it. My voice still can get somewhat high pitched if I get upset about something and people usually tell me when on the phone I sound really young (and i'm 21.)
