    Two articles to show your teens!

    If you're like me, you have a teen who 1) wears headphones and 2) texts.

    Please show them these articles, so that they can learn to be sensible about these two things.

    Thank you - I saw those articles, and was horrified. The surgeon should certainly know better. Especially in California.

    My DH rec'd a ticket for talking on the phone while driving -- he won't do that again!

    Wonder if the hearing loss will apply to me too! I watch links, etc, using headphones (which is a lot). Since the computer is in the living room (where I can keep an eye on my teen), we use the headphones if we need to listen to something!

    Yikes....

    Me too, Mel. But I use Sony headphones that totally encompasses the whole ear, not earbuds. I hate earbuds.

    I went to so many rock concerts as a teen. After one Van Halen concert, I could hear nothing but buzzing for a week. At the time I thought it was worth it, but now, not so much.
