View Full Version : Don't you wish some children came with a volume switch?

I have a 3.5yr old mindee who is just soooo loud all the time.

She is also very bossy, so all I hear all day is "no, L, come and play my game", "C, come here, we're playing this now", "look what I can do everyone". "I want...I want...I want..." All at the top of her voice.

The EYFS says children must be in sight or hearing at all times. No problem with that - I couldn't get her out of hearing distance if I tried :laughing:

:laughing: I know what you mean I have one exactly the same. I am constantly telling him "use your indoor voice".

Oh yes, I am constantly telling one of mine 'you don't need to shout, I am right beside you'

Same here he constantly shouts by the end of the day my ears are ringing. I think its an attention seeking thing

I have a ten month old who goes "uuugggghhhhhhhhh" "uggggggghhhhhhhhh" "ugggggghhhhhhhh" all day long if you want her instead? :laughing:

I can offer a high pitched delighted squeal ... only gets turned off when LO sleeps! :-)

Lol! I have one too a 4 year old who is a the top of his voice all day long - funnily he is hyper sensitive to noise - he obviously doesn't hear himself!

I have a 4 year old like that too. She is bossy and constantly wants attention, often telling her to talk quietly

I knew I wouldn't be the only one with a child like this!

We've had a glorious, sunny day here, so spent most of it out in the garden. I was very conscious of the fact that all the neighbours would have been able to hear were her voice and me constantly saying "quiet voice A!"

Yep! But an off switch would be better :D
