This is amazing! Yet another story of a young child having the joy of hearing their parent's voice for the first time. It is absolutely amazing what technology can do now. And it is awesome to see this stuff. Just pure awesomeness to see all these videos emerging of late.

How is this breaking alternative news when you are quoting a variety health article from the MSM? Should be in a different forum in my opinion and you should start following the rules with instead of constantly starting threads in the wrong section.

We can be as macho as we want but men become boys when mom speaks.

Great vid and thanks.

Now I have to go and phone mom...just to say how much she means to me now and how she has shaped my life.

Not looking for stars but I will S&F the OP for the gentle reminder of what is REALLY important. Just going to do it.

Peace

Please enlighten us as to the T&C because we just don't know as much as you apparently. 6 weeks as a member and you are dictating to older members as to how they should post?

If the only thing you gained from the OP is a boo-boo in posting...too bad for you.

Peace

Thanks for the story OP, it's very heartwarming and brings a huge smile to the face, but your negative post doesn't add anything here does it?

As for you -
You posted 2 minutes after the OP, and the video is 2:51 so you cannot have even watched it all. Great contribution.
If the location bothers you THAT much, why not report it using the correct channels on the members avatar (ie report the thread to a Mod and let them decide on the thread's correct location and also advise the member if they are putting things in wrong forums by accident on several occasions) and keep your snide comments to yourself.
Your response is one of negativity in a very positive thread. I am loathe to add to that negativity anymore but feel people like you should reflect on why you are like you are.
There is a saying
"if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all"
Something you perhaps should consider in future.
Regards
F


Once again thanks OP - was a great video and A joy to watch.The sheer delight on that little boys face should cheer anyone up...

The volume the hearing aid was at was very uncomfortable for him...

he didnt know how to communicate that he wanted to turn the volume down.

This is a sweet story, at least on the surface. It's good that this child is very young, because older people can have problems, even trauma discerning the sounds around them, and crave the peace of silence. There are also health concerns, about an implant in the head. It can cause painful ringing sensations and other medical complications.

The deaf community is at odds with this device, as some feel it's as if the child's brain is being inputted by a computer, while others argue that these people loose the benefit cultural skills given within the deaf community, and tend to be isolated from them.



Here's a series on the topic. It is several videos. I saw this on TV, Discovery Channel or TLC, a while back. The OP's video made me think of it.
