6 year old having hearing problems? Or maybe a weird kid phase?
At his 5 year well check, they did the normal hearing test and it was fine. But for quite a while now (months) he often asks "what did he say?" A lot of times someone will say one thing about the weather for instance, and he'll say "where are you going?" The strangest thing though is that it seems like he has tiny people in his ears translating the wrong words lol. Some examples:
Me- we're going to the store
Me- she likes her treats.
Him- what drink?
That's all I can think of at the moment, but hopefully you get the point. It is like a bad comedy from the 70s. I really don't think he's kidding, though. It's driving us all a little nutty having to constantly repeat ourselves. He has actually asked for hearing aids a few times. The only thing is that if we talk quietly he still hears us, he just can't always understand what we say.
He has his 6 year well check in 4 weeks and he can't go back to the ENT without a new referral so I'm probably just going to wait to talk to his Dr.
Has anyone else experienced this and had it turn out fine? Or maybe it was outgrown? I have googled and googled but haven't found much.
