How much volume is too much when it comes to your child's headphones?
The iPod generation may think nothing of cranking up their headphones, but the damage to their ears can be permanent, causing hearing loss by the time they reach 30.
But that doesn't mean take the headphones away, just monitor how your child uses them.
If a parent can hear the music coming from the headphones, it's too loud.
The volume should be no louder than half of what the device is capable of.
Here's another tip, headphones are better for your ears than earbuds, mainly because they let more sound escape.
Rule of thumb, don't let your child listen to their headphones for more than an hour a day.
And keep the volume at 50-percent or lower to avoid any permanent damage.
