Saying Allahu Akbar in a raised voice when performing salaah alone

Q: Sometimes when I'm offering my salaah, my kids start to argue with each other or start reciting some surah. As a result my attention gets diverted. In this situation I read Allahu akbar (when going into ruku or sajadah) in a bit loud voice to stop them from disturbance. Is this a sin?

A: The namaaz is valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
