What's with all the screaming??

Marshy thinks that he has to talk by screaming. It is getting old, and I am tired of having to take 4+ Ibuprofen every day. He knows how to talk softly, and how to whisper, but he loves to scream. I don't get it! We try to keep him from screaming, but nothing seems to help. Any suggestions as to how to get the noise to go down a few decibels? Thanks!

Tell him you won't answer him/do what he wants if he is screaming. He has to talk to /ask you in his proper voice. And then when he starts screaming at you remind him of what you said and then ignore him until he quietens down.
It'll be hard but this bit of tough love will work eventually.
Just remember you are the adult therefore you are in charge.

Good Luck

Everyone could start whispering. Maybe that would help.
