The author has pointed out the attentiveness of a child. If something is taught or told it is to be observed if the child pays attention to it. If the child is absent-minded or he is not able to focus his mind on it then parents should be worried about him as it is not a good sign for them.

Even this challenging situation would ease
One of my sisters is deaf by birth. We couldn't notice this till her 6 months. When she is in her 6th month I observed that she is not seeing us even though we make sounds from her back. Then I informed my parents and took her to an ENT specialist. He did the testing and told us that her earning capacity is just 5% and even a hearing aid also is not useful.
I agree with the author that parents should try to develop attentive skills in their children from their early age itself so that we can shape in the correct way.
