A psychologist wrote about the healthy aspect of a parent not listening to every kiddo’s imaginative story-telling moments. He said the brain functions best when it isn’t multi-tasking. Children have a lot of stories that take time away from the to-do list.
Kids and parents often have the same voice inclinations, too. Mistaking siblings voices may occur when in a different room or by phone. In communication, do you easily recognize people’s voices?
Our ear’s physiology is fascinating. It holds the smallest bone in the body. Sound separates into vibrations by hair fiber movement. Each ear has a relay station that splits into two pathway’s to filter sounds. The paths cross hemispheres to recognize, distinguish, and filter auditory information. Sound localization, pattern recognition, timing, and balance are main processes of the ear.
Social listening often includes head movement. Examples include nodding yes or tilting the head in compassion. These movements send messages to your brain that affect the inner ear. If voice recognition is a noticeable issue then create the habit to communicate face to face. Our head, eyes and lips are an asset here.
