Hey Everyone, I am a SAHM of two small boys and our oldest Landan is 1 1/2. He was born with hearing loss in both of his ears and has been wearing aids since he was 4 months old. My main question is how do you deal with strangers comments and stares at our sweet little boy who happens to look just a little different then most kids. I know it is not an everyday sight for most people. But some comments are just so stupid like, "Oh cool, your child is listening to an MP3 player" or they just stare. There have been a few times when I broke down in public right after we got his aids, b/c I truely didn't know how to handle it. Just curious on your opinions.
Thanks in advance,
