Really helpful post

Very good post ... 👍👍

Very unique post and important too. I remember my nephew who is hearing impaired kid had to wear the set. His parents use to wear it by taking auto to his class and he will not even know but he was just 2 yrs. Then cochlear was implanted and they thought him its nis ears. He is 8 yrs now and never forgets.

I know the struggle well... He was just 6 months old. Now he's habituated. In the beginning it was difficult. Helpful post indeed.

Rebecca Prakash kids are really smart enough to understand, its just the initial phase that we need to help them to get used to it now my son is very happy wearing specs and able to carry it with confidence

Sonam patel i know he was too small to understand u must have better experience than mine and More challenges..My kid started wearing just a year ago...I'm wearing since 22years
