    How do You Reduce the Risk of Hearing Loss in Children?

     

    • Keep them away from loud noises

    Noise-induced hearing is permanent, but it can be prevented. It is caused by prolonged exposure to loud noise such as music concerts, lawnmowers and fireworks. To prevent this, ensure that you keep your children away from the noisy environment or ensure they wear earmuffs when in noisy environments.

     

    • Quiet home

    Create a quiet home. For instance, ensure that the TV volume and video games are appropriate but can still be heard clearly. You don't want your kid to strain. Buy quiet toys or toys whose volume can be regulated. If you live in a noisy area, ensure the doors and windows are closed to keep the excess noise out. Have furnishings that absorbs noise, such as carpets.

     

    • Protective equipment

    Encourage your children to use earplugs and earmuffs if they are potentially exposed to loud noise. This can be when they are going to a music concert or watching fireworks. If they are in a band, buy them earplugs.

     

    • Headphones and music

    Ensure your child's headphone volume is at the minimal volume. Teach your child about the cons of having loud music directly in their ear and encourage them to turn down the music. If you can hear their music when they have headphones on, it is too loud.
