affects an estimated one in six children
by the end of their teenage years-a staggeringly high rate
for an injury that is entirely preventable.
It’s important to note these tips to protect
your child’s hearing.
* Teach children to respect their hearing
* Know when a sound is dangerously loud
*Set the limits
*Make safe headphone choices
