DD1 is VERY sensitive to sounds and is always complaining about them. I always wondered if there was a syndrome associated...like opposite of deafness? Anyway, I have sensitive ears but am not bothered. DD1 wants to physically remove herself - eg. from an idling car engine if she's outside of the car, a concert we went to with African drums, and so on. I don't know how to help her short of earplugs.
I have 3 boys and they have all gone through a sensitive hearing stage from approximately 2 1/2 to about 4. Assuming there is nothing actually wrong, I think kids tend to learn to tune out things as they approach school age and before that are really affected by noise. Younger, they are more concerned about getting fed, changed, etc.
