My soon-to-be teenager loves her iPod and loves listening to music and videos all the time. So routinely she has earbuds in her ears apparently rendering her deaf – at least to her mother asking her to do things.
She supposedly has the feature where you can click something and they are supposed to be able to hear people but she rarely seems to respond on the first attempt to communicate with her.
She truly is a great kid. She gets all As and is agreeable and respectful almost all the time. This is a small complaint but it is very frustrating repeating myself to be heard. (It’s like I’m hanging out with my 70-year-old hearing-impaired father, who insists he’s hearing everything.)
So my question is: What are your rules about earbuds? Do you have rules about when and how often they can wear their earbuds? Do you have the selective hearing problem with or without ear buds?
