I was hoping to get some advice from the comments myself. My 3 year old daughter is a loud talker. It has taken me a while to realize she is a loud talker in public places because she is very self-confident and happy with herself, and she wants everyone to know that! I'm extatic she is proud of who she is...but I still have a bit of a hard time with the loudness.

Take a look at the book "Loud Emily" about a girl who shouts too much and ultimately it comes in use. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0689810784/qid=1107470148/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl14/104-9017721-2211140?v=glance&s=books&n=507846

My guy is loud - but I come from a loud family. My husband isn't. I don't mind the yelling so much, but the high-decibel shrieking sometimes gets to me. I've even put tissue in my ears. I've tried talking to him in a low voice. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

My son (2 1/2) is very loud in general. And he emits ear-splitting shrieks when he's having a lot of fun playing. I don't know... sitting down with him and looking him in the eye and asking him to calm down sometimes works (after you explain to them what "calm down" MEANS). I figure he'll grow out of it.

Then again, my wife says that I talk too loudly sometimes.

My son (now three) had-and still has-that problem. Sometimes, and I repeat sometimes, if I whisper to him, he will match my volume. The louder he talks, the softer I whisper, and it becomes like a game. As for other people being annoyed, sure they'll be there. But when they have kids, they'll get theirs!

My son can't speak so when I hear children talking loud it brings joy to my ears. I say let her be, she is discovering herself and she is making a "joyful noise". Let those sour puss folks be uptight. There is pure joy in hearing a childs voice!! And by the way; you can tell them I said so!

Don't have an answer to that one, but I coulda used one three years ago. My daughter is so loud she has actually damaged my hearing over the years.
