Summer is the perfect time to show your kids that giving back can be fun. Choose an organization that has a shared interest among your family and ask about volunteer opportunities.

Although earbuds are popular now, I'd caution against using them too excessively, for a few reasons.

First, because they deliver sound directly into the ear canal, there's a much greater risk of damaging your ears if the volume gets too loud. There's nothing between your ears and the sound to protect you. Earbuds can also push earwax deeper into the ears, causing blockages that affect your hearing, making you raise the volume even more.

Over-the-ear headphones are a much better choice. Not only do you not have to worry about funneling sound directly into your eardrums, but most over-the-ear headphones are also, as a general rule, more comfortable to wear than earbuds. Better yet, higher-end headphones often have noise-canceling functionality, further reducing your need to crank up the volume.

You can be born with single-sided deafness (aka unilateral hearing loss), or develop it at any point in your life.

Losing hearing in one—not both—ears affects more than just your ability to hear. You also may have difficulty knowing where sounds are coming from and how loud they are, and have trouble holding a conversation in a noisy environment.

There are several treatment options for hearing loss in one ear, and most people start out with a CROS or BiCROS hearing aid system. Both these options require wearing a device on both ears (not just the one with hearing loss).
