  • My son will be 2 in 3 months. He does not listen either. I've had his hearing tested and the Dr says his hearing is GREAT. I don't know why I took him to have his hearing tested because when he hears Tigger and Poo on the TV he comes running. Does your daughter watch a lot of TV? My son LOVES cartoons!! The TV's in our house are always on cartoons. My husband, mother, and I are always talking to eachother while his cartoons are on. I think he's learned to tune us out so that he can watch his cartoons in peace. Be patient. Keep talking to your daughter. That's all that we can do.
