  • Top Tips for Protecting Childrens Hearing

    When most people think of

    hearing problems, elderly

    people come to mind. But

    unfortunately, hearing damage

    can happen at any age, and its important to

    protect the ears to avoid unnecessary hearing loss.

    This is especially important in children, who have

    very sensitive ears that can be permanently

    damaged with prolonged exposure to noise. Follow

    these tips to protect your childrens hearing in loud

    situations.

    1. Keep your children out of situations with loud

    noises if at all possible. If youre going to a rock

    concert, shell out the money for a babysitter so

    your kids wont have to be exposed to prolonged

  • noise at a high decibel level. Plus, youll have a

    more enjoyable experience without kids in tow.

    2. Put ear plugs in your kids ears or ear muffs

    over their ears if you will be in areas with loud

    noises. For example, kids should wear ear plugs to

    a 4th of July fireworks show or if theyre visiting a

    construction site with lots of loud machinery. If

    youre at an event with loudspeakers, avoid sitting

    next to them and give your children ear plugs or

    ear muffs.

    3. Set childrens toys with speakers to the quietest

    setting. You dont need to hear them from all the

    way across the room, and children can damage

    their hearing by holding the toys near their ears

    with the volume turned up all the way.

  • 4. Limit the volume on headphones that children

    wear. Especially if theyre using them for prolonged

    periods of time, wearing the headphones can

    damage hearing. Consider doing quiet activities on

    airplane trips instead of cranking up the volume on

    the headphones to hear a movie over the noise of

    the engine.
