I can't believe no one has asked this question, or am I the only one in agony? I have a seven year old who never shuts up! I know it goes right back to having to be in the center of the universe. He is in the midst of being kicked out of the garden as we speak (he's a slow learner and hasn't gotten past one day yet) for other behaviors, but no matter what we do he never shuts up. When he is not incessantly talking, he's making one sort of noise or another, but it never ends. When we correct one annoying behavior, he creates a new one! Help, I'm ready to commit harakiri!
