My eight-year-old daughter is struggling a bit in school. I’m very worried. Did this ever happen to you?
Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: Yes, my daughter was having trouble in reading class. I went in for conferences with her teacher, and in time we realized that she had a hearing problem! I had no idea. When you talk to someone all of the time, you unconsciously adjust to speaking so they can hear you, so I didn’t realize she couldn’t hear well.
It turns out that my daughter had chronic ear infections, and she needed to have tubes put into her ears. After that, things got much better!
