This day in age our little ones grow up using head phones. Weather it's the portable DVD players, game systems, computer games, mp3 players, etc, most kids these days wear them on a regular basis. Listen to Your Buds is a fabulous campaign that promotes head phone safety. Check out the site. It is full of great information for parents, kids, and educators. There is even a really cute game called Turn Down the Volume that shows kids the different levels of sound and what is considered safe for their ears.
My 5 year old and I both really enjoyed video clip on "How the Ear Works."
The site focuses on three rules of thumb:
Lower the volume
Limit listening time
Upgrade your headphones
Great tips for healthy ears!
