    Oh, this is so me. DH and DS2 have bad allergies, so we can't have carpet. We have hardwood instead. The amount of noise the thundering of tiny feet make drives me up. a. wall. It makes me want to hide with a pillow over my ears.

    It's amazing what noises - esp those picked up by sharp female ears - will do to your sanity. In my old house, we were surrounded by boulevards, train tracks and downtown urban sounds that all seemed to cancel each other or at least blend in. When we moved out here where we are now, it was so quiet I had trouble adjusting right away. Now, I'm so glad for the quiet.

    During a recent but short power outage, I noticed how the quiet house got even quieter, and when the power was restored, I could hear small beeps, clicks, whirs, and mechanical noises all over the place like a bunch of baby robots waking up. lol

    I suggest a combination of assertively telling them to keep it down, or at least to designate certain "times" when it's okay to be loud, and the ear plugs.

    Jesus christ, this kid doesn't seem to get it. He watches tv like, 5 hours a day, then recites his french lesson on his laptop (terrible sound quality). I got pissed and asked him to do that in his room, and he got all mad. This stubborn INFJ is never gonna get it.

    Edit: Now he's whistling. Why?
