I believe that parents of a child that is born Deaf doess not have the choice to choose for their son or daughter at a young age if they should recieve a cochlear implant or not. I think that parents should wait and give their child a chance in the Deaf world. If parents go ahead and get the cochlear implant for their child at a young age, maybe when the child is older they will choose they really don't want the implant. A great number of teens that were implanted with cochlear implants as toddlers choose not to wear them now. when the child is older if they want to have a cochlear implant because they feel it would be better for themselves. I also believe that people should not choose to get cochlear implants. I think they should expirience deaf culture and community.
