Sweet merciful Mary are my kids loud. We have had their hearing tested and that’s not the problem. I guess it’s like a regulatory thing.
I’m constantly saying, “inside voices please”. It doesn’t seem to make any lasting impression.
Right now, Emmett is probably the loudest, followed by Elliott in second and Gavin a close third. Emmett will stand right in front of you and screaming what he’s trying to say. I’ll literally be 2 or 3 feet away when he does this.
It’s not like we don’t respond to them when they talk. Sometimes why they need to speak in such a loud manner is a bit of a mystery. Having said that, it’s a mystery that I need to solve because all the noise is driving me a bit crazy.
Is this maybe a sensory processing issue? Maybe they don’t realize just how loud they are being. I can definitely see them not being aware of the volume of their voice.
Either way, it’s a problem that we need to find a solution to. I’m thinking of putting up some visual reminders of how loud they are supposed to be while in the house.
Visual reminders work well with my kids, most of the time. I just need to make it as simple as possible, so that all three of the boys will understand what the signs mean.
Anyone else have a similar issue with noise? To me, I would think they would be driving themselves crazy with all the noise.
