How can I get people to take me more seriously?

I have a super high pitched voice for absolutely no reason which makes me really hate talking to people because they laugh like somethings wrong with me -.- Nobody takes me seriously not even mom. What can I do?

Okay.. First off.. DON'T LISTEN TO OTHER PEOPLE. What they say and what they do means absolutely NOTHING, remember? Well, you need to remember that. And anyways, maybe you think you have one, but you really don't.. And try talking more calm.. Try to talk in a more smooth, deeper tone. I hope this helps /: And how do you know that they aren't taking you seriously?

I can tell because of the way they act after I talk. Sometimes it seems like I never even said anything. Well thanks but I really cannot talk in a deep tone it sounds so silly. :D

Maybe the people you are talking to are just very immature. I don't mean that to be offensive to your friends or your Mother, it is just the way you make them sound. (I'm sorry for sounding rude!! /: )

Honestly, everyone can be immature. To a point until is is straight up just rude. But what really annoys me is the fact that a family member, even worse, your Mother is being immature about this. I mean really?! You probably got your voice from her anyways. And having a high pitched or squeaky voice is not entirely bad, I mean, when you are in choir, you can sing the highest. Which is a REALLY good thing because you could get more solos (if you are into that kind of thing). And, most guys actually find that kind of voice "cute".

Try to say things that sound smart like big words.
Try acting older like how you dress and the things you do
Don't take what others say to serious don't let others control you do what you want

I think maybe you can try to talk less with them, and only talk when they want to get close to you. Maybe after some time when you can feel calmer, your voice could also change.

It isn't fair to cut yourself off from socialization, just because your voice isn't perfect. That's like never leaving your home because your skin is too pale. It is something really stupid to do. I understand you were just trying to help, I just get really frustrated with people getting bullied or hurt just because they aren't "perfect".

Not really, I don't think a lot of people talk seriously and reasonably in our society, and I don't think we need to talk that much unless we have to do something.

Your voice has nothing to do with that ... If you want people to respect you and take you serious... Then you must take yourself seriously choose your words carefully respect others be confident and your actions your actions speak louder than words.....

Do something mature and stick up for yourself and others. State your points and make sure it is clear to the person you're addressing. Also, be straight forward on your topic. Get your point across.
