    It would annoy the heck out of me. I would go with it to a point, but I would probably ask DH to talk to her and have her tone it down. I am very much in favor of keeping the peace and doing little...

    That sounds like a very aggressive teaching style, which make work with some kids (not mine). I would stay away from the chain "learn to swim" places and try to find a private lesson. The corporate...

    Earplugs! Just kidding. My DS is also a loud talker. I find that responding in a very low voice, almost a whisper, helps him adjust his voice. His instinct is always to yell, and we are still...
