Chatterbox and loud

Postby Red_Snow » Sun Jan 09, 2011 11:34 pm

Hi parents, anybody with a child who like to speak loudly? My 3y.o always speaks so loudly and nonstop. It was cute when he just learnt to talk but now it's becoming quite irritating :| I hv to keep reminding him again n again coz he talks alot but will only work for a few seconds n he will start again . :stupid: just wondering, will he outgrow it? Hope can hear from some parents :thankyou:

Have you tried whispering to him? 3 yr old may not know what is loud, so if you tell him - don't be so loud - he may not understand what you want from him. I find that children will whisper back if you whisper to them. You can also show examples of different volume and get him to try them, so he can hear and feel the difference in voice projection. After that you can remind him to make his voice "smaller" and to save the big voice for important things. Hope that works for u. :)

Hi deminc, thanks for the advice. Never try whispering though. But actually he knows how to speak softly coz after reminding he will talk softer but it seems difficult for him coz the way he talks will sound so unnatural, half way between whispering n talking :lol: and play DVD bout indoor n outdoor voice to him but seems doesnt work on him :?

So cute! Maybe he just needs some time to get used to modulating his voice volume. :)

When my kids first started childcare, I realise suddenly that they are speaking very loudly. It happened with DD and again with DS. I realise then that in a childcare the noise level can be quite high especially during play and interaction time so the child tends to speak very loudly.

My nephew too, speaks very loudly. He is naturally loud, I think due to him being looked after my his granparents when he was younger and they talk very loudly and the TV is forever blaring in the background. Then when he went into childcare, also noisy so he continues with that volume. And there was once we noticed that he was even louder then ever, we eventually realised that his allergies were acting up and the backed up mucus is affecting his hearing. Once that cleared he went back to his normal loudness.

I guess there is no fast solution, only way is to constantly remind them to keep their volume down. Eventually they become more aware. There were times when DD will start speaking at a pretty loud volume and sheepishly say I very loud hor.
