You may not realize it, but your kids’ hearing is affected every day. Exposure to noisy school cafeterias, loud music, movies, video games, and other noisy activities can lead to noise-induced hearing loss.

Noise-induced hearing loss:

  • Can build over time.
  • Is permanent.
  • Is preventable.

Preteens are at an important stage in their lives. They are starting to make some of their own choices. At the same time, they are still listening to you. That’s why this is a great time to help your children develop healthy habits to protect their hearing.
