Your house is noisy, I guarantee it. You yell (to reach their ears), you smash dishes (just putting them away), you stomp your feet (especially if you are upstairs), there are machines running, notifications going off, the dog is barking, you let the TV blare in the background, there is chaotic noise everywhere and you have no idea. The sound in your home increases over time just by virtue of living life. I would like you to consider, however, that the sounds in our homes are an expression of the chaos and pace of our lives. And it is absolutely overwhelming and stress-inducing for your child, I guarantee it.
