If I am not mistaken, the only thing that Cole's mother yells when she is pushing him is "AAaah!!" Where in the world are you hearing an Australian accent in that? I would think that an Australian "AAaah" would sound the same as as a American one. I would understand if she had said "AAaah,mate!!" or something. Really, come on now. I have to aggree with TRP on this one. This is nitpicking if I ever saw it!

For all we know she may have lived in Australia when she was younger and moved to the States. Not necessarily a mistake as the characters past has not been discussed.

You are talking about dialects, I'm talking about accents. Accents shape the muscles of the throat and mouth that causes even the non-linguistic utterances to have a certain inflection. A good example of this is the Nazi's in raiders of the Lost Ark -when they went ARRGH!(usually when being killed) Spielberg made sure they sounded German. And while this Sixth Sense slip-up is a very small one, it is still interesting to hear -if you know what to listen for.

The actress is Australian, and it was a slip-up, a small one but a slip-up none the less, and besides this IS a web site for nit-pickers

This is a slip-up, I mean just because the movie is set in America, doesn't mean she isn't from Australia.
