  • If you have one, tape record him and play it back. He will probably enjoy this game and you can use it to teach him the difference between loud and quiet, shouting and whispering, inside and outside voices.
    Then you have to make sure you never, ever give him what he is shouting for. Look at him and say you can't understand him when he is so loud. Could he ask again in a quiet voice?
