If you wouldn’t have your child sit so close to the television because it can damage their eyes, you wouldn’t want them to be in a loud place because it can damage their ears. Baby’s and children’s ears are extra sensitive to sound, and it’s important to protect them from suffering hearing damage as a result.
In your ear, there are tiny of thousand cells, called hair cells. They are responsible for picking up different frequencies and sending them the signal to the brain where it is processed. Over time these hair cells, tend to break, and the older you get the harder it is to hear.
Here are some tips and advice to protect your child’s ears:
Avoid Loud Noises
The best way to avoid loud noises at events such as concerts and parades are too stay away from the sound-producing source. Try and limit the length of exposure to loud sounds.
Turn the Volume Down
