Children of deaf people mature earlier, more sensitive


Share post:


The children of deaf people mature sooner and have a higher sense of empathy, and are more sensitive, and this is the reason why they are also able to learn other languages quicker. This happens because in order to establish communication with their parents during their childhood, they have to learn the sign language. Their childhood is full of challenges, which proves to be beneficial after they grow up.

Recently, Ramas Mekare, a PHD scholar in Australia’s Deakin University, researched about the impacts of sign language on mental health, and he found out that the children of deaf parents have to manage many things during their childhood, and are unable to invite people at home with ease, and they also feel a weird void during their childhood, which they use to make their performance more effective.

Former social worker Sheldon Poulton has said that such people establish contact with their parents on the basis of the gestures of their bodies and facial expressions, and their experiences. And naturally, amidst all this, there comes a point wherein they do not like doing this, but still, it becomes a routine. Being a child to deaf parents, one is given the responsibility of becoming more aware towards the various needs of others, and the children of the deaf prepare themselves differently from the very beginning.
