Are your boys loud?

I swear my ds feels the need to talk so loud.  It is like a whisper or indoor voice does not exist in his world.  He has to be reminded all the time to bring his voice down. I hope whoever he gets for 1st grade will be as patient as his kindergarten teacher was .  Also at school he is a great kid, kind to his classmates listens to his teacher and follows the rules 95% of the time.  At home, I have to ask him several times to clean his toys up, he hits hi sister, he hits me he gets so wound up I have to get on his case about everything.  he does have his sweet moments, but most of the time he is super rough. he is younger than his sister.  Sometimes he just makes me want to pull my hair out.

My 12 year old is loud most of the time. My 17 can be too at the most inappropiate times. But they are both good kids.

Yes my boys are very loud I have a one-year-old boy a three-year-old boy a five-year-old boy and a seven-year-old boy they're always yelling screaming I tried to tell him to use inside voices and it does not help what I've found is letting them go outside and just run around with a big help I do not have any girls but I do feel you!!!!

This question made me laugh because just this morning me and mine had this same conversation.  I'm always looking for the volume control button on my two.

Yup, I'm often reminding him to tone it down by saying "indoor voice."

Their talking isn't so bad, it's just when then get on a kick of repeating noises in small spaces that I start to go crazy!  Right now their noise of choice is the "Be-do Be-do" firefighter Minion noise from Despicable Me 2...sooooo fun in the car or the bathroom or our small kitchen...

 Let me just answer yout title question with a question- Do we need air to breathe? LOL My boys are 13 and 8 and can get loud! Sometimes it's excitement, sometimes they are fighting, and sometimes it's just the sounds they make to indicate a motor revving, something exploding, etc... everything has to have a sound. lol

No way Jose. I have a real problem with noise. I am the person that can sit in absolute silence for hours on end and it's complete bliss. From the beginning my son has known that being excessively loud is a good way to make mom excessively mad. Of course when he's outside playing sports or at the park or something he is as loud as he wants to be, but the moment he steps inside he knows that the noise is to be controlled. 

He's almost 9 now, but he's been this way since he was about 2.
