Children are loud. That's expected. Some people are loud as adults. That happens. I can be loud. Very, very loud. I am not the best at self-regulating the volume of my speech. Every once in a while I notice that I have gradually gotten louder and louder. It happens especially easily when I am excited about whatever I discuss. But usually I try to maintain a fairly quiet baseline. And I am working on helping my children to do the same. It isn't always an easy thing. But I do hope that they will develop a better sense of how loud they are than I ever have. What about you? Are you a loud person? Or are you quiet? Do you feel that you went through any particular training to be better at either being quiet or being loud? Or did it come from genetics or life experience or what?
