* When reading to your child, consider reading on his or her right hand side.

* As the right ear is critical for learning in school, acquaint yourself with hazards that can damage a child’s hearing.  In particular, educate your child about how loud an Ipod should be played.  Minimize the amount of time, per day, that your child has earphones on.

* Encourage your children to protect their ears at concerts. Educate them about how damage to the ear happens.
