In our work as a teachers we often encounter situations when children are playing together or even simply talking very loudly, standing only a few centimeters away from each other. In this situations we always try to make them a little bit quite but very often this is related to the fact that the child wants to get through the crowd of other talking children, or by shouting put more expressions of his emotions about what he is saying or doing. In this case nobody will be surprised that children behave quite loudly . They are full of enthusiasm, they often speak louder than adults.

They unknowingly duplicate the patterns available to them. It does not have to be anyone particularly close. It may be you in kindergarten, and even a colleague who for your child is very important at the moment and has become a kind of authority.
It may of course happen (and I wish you) that your child speaks louder than the others, because it has
