I have two wonderful children and wife and we just enjoy our own hard of hearing life.
Guess your mother didn't have the option of CI...
So, when you are warning people, you do that from a perspective of a HOH experience. You do not have the perspective of a CI-adult that grew up with CI. Not many of these exist due to the fact that it is very new, and because technology has improved so much.
I appreciate your help, but a HOH child in a hearing family can hardly be compared to a child with CI in a hearing family...
Have a look at Boult's latest thread... Some good info there...
