Just as important as where you have the conversation is what emotional state you’re coming from. Telling your loved one that they may have difficulty hearing should not come from a place of frustration. If you’re feeling frustrated, make sure you take time to collect yourself before you have the talk. That way, you’re coming at the issue from a more objective standpoint, which your loved one will be better able to relate to.
It may be beneficial to keep a log of situations and settings you notice your loved one has difficulty hearing in. This can also work as a way to process the frustration and turn it into actionable talking points.
