That loud voice is driving me crazy!
How do you get your kids to lower their voices to a reasonable level? My eight year old son talks non stop and when he is excited his voice just gets louder and louder to the point he is practically yelling. And it gives me headaches on occasion. I tell him to take a deep breath and then tell me what he wants to say, but within a sentence or two he is back to full throttle in the volume department. Nothing I say seems to stick with him and I guess I am looking for tips on how to teach him to control his own voice. I really don't think he knows or realizes just how loud he is. What have you found that works?
