Tips for Using Tech Gifts Safely This Holiday Season
Date:11/25/2013

Rockville, MD, USA (PRWEB) November 25, 2013

With skyrocketing use of smart mobile devices among children, it is critical for parents to instill safe listening habits early to prevent long-term, irreversible hearing damage that can result from unsafe use of accompanying ear buds and headphones. According to Common Sense Media’s 2013 study on mobile media use, 75% of kids ages 8 and under have access to a smart mobile device at home, up from 52% in 2011. Almost 40% of children under 2 have used a mobile device, up from 10% 2 years ago.

Many children listen to music, watch television shows, and play games on these devices at dangerously high volumes—and could be paying an unfortunate price in the form of noise-induced hearing loss. The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) urges parents to help protect their kids with a few simple safe listening tips this holiday season:

1. Keep the volume down. A good guide is half volume.
2. Limit listening time. Everyone’s ears benefit from a break.
3. Model good listening habits. Practice what you preach—for your kids’ sake and your own.

“Mobile technology use is pervasive in today’s society and is becoming ingrained in children at younger and younger ages,” said Patricia A. Prelock, PhD, CCC-SLP, ASHA’s 2013 president. “Parents have a tremendous opportunity to start children off right by establishing safe listening behaviors early. While we want everyone to enjoy their new tech gifts this holiday season, we also want them to enjoy the gift of hearing for many years to come.”
