DS1 turned 6 a few days ago but from around 4.5 his listening got so bad I actually went and got his hearing checked. His hearing is perfect 🙄
He's a great kid, kind and helpful and polite and smart....but man he does my head in so much when I have to repeat myself a dozen times before he acknowledges me. Sometimes he's just deep in play, sometimes he's away with the fairies, sometimes he literally will be looking at me and it just goes in one ear and out the other.
DS2 is a couple of weeks shy of 4. He just flat out ignores me.

DS will be 5 in 5 months and his listening his terrible!! He knows exactly what is said but chooses to ignore and it really drives me wild!

My daughter's a bit younger but GEEZ it's annoying! She's nearly 4... Used to be great with listening, definitely hears and understands what I'm saying but no longer pays attention. It's as though the way she filters the world has changed, and "mum talking" has gone into the "background noise" category. *sigh*

I can relate to every anecdote above. It's so frustrating!!! My 2.5yr old listens better than my almost 5 year old. Drives me mad! I do find that It really depends on his mood and how "busy" or distracted he is. Which seems to be quite often lately.. Gah!

@sunnygirl79 I'm a teacher (had kindy for the last few years). You wouldn't believe the number of perfect angels in my classroom whose mums said they just won't listen at home. Don't worry too much about school. Sorry can't help you with the home stuff though!

Thanks for all the replies so glad it's not just us feeling this way! Clearly selective hearing is common at this age!

Mr 6 has selective hearing here too, especially when watching tv, using the iPad or looking at his footy cards. Drives me batty!
