I’m completely deaf in my right ear, and I’m a parent to a toddler and a preschooler. I need to be able to read lips to most effectively hear people when they speak, and preschoolers are notoriously unintelligible in the best of circumstances. I try to teach my kids to look at my face when they speak so I can hear them, but it doesn’t often work.
I’m curious to know what Deaf and other hard of hearing parents are doing to help their hearing children understanding different needs and abilities. What are coping strategies for getting kids (and spouses!) to quit mumbling and look at me? — Hunny
(P.S. Before anyone suggests telling them repeatedly to quit mumbling and look at me, it hasn’t been working.)
