As all moms know, the toddler stage is not an easy one. Hearing the word "no" is one thing, but actually "listening" and comprehending it, then stopping what they're doing makes a mom's life just that much easier!
Aiden is a VERY active one year old and truly into every.little.thing that he should not be. My mom and grandparents laugh at how busy he is and how he finds things he shouldn't. I couldn't imagine if he didn't have his cochlear implants. With everything that he is into (and of course "everything" he loves has nothing to do with his toys), I would be on the run way more than I already am. I am amazed by how Aiden not only hears me, but that he understands me and stops whatever it is he should not be doing ... well, for the most part anyway.
Repetition is key to teaching a deaf child to learn to listen. Well, "No" is definitely one word that I am constantly repeating, day in and day out, so there's no wonder the boy understands it so well!
Here is a video of a couple times I was able to grab my camera in time before having to yell out "Aiden, No!"
