I thought unusual but fairly normal (ish) she is 10 btw

He thinks it's wierd & odd

Is it? or is he overreacting?

I used to do that at a similar age. I am fairly normal smile

its certainly good for reading skills isnt it. I used to do it too. Not sure why.

I guess I might get her ears tested anyway just in case

My DD is 10 and always does this, if her sister is watching the same thing the sound is up but she still wants the subtitles on, She's did it for years.

When DH is watching sport & I am asleep she creeps into our room and watches telly with the subtitles on - I thought it was just then - but now my dad pointed it out I realise she does it ots

My girl did this, and will do it now if she can get away with it!

My son does this all the time - aged 8. Don't see the problem really, at least he's practising his reading skills while watching telly !

katy, would have DD's hearing checked. I say that from experience. Might be nothing, might just be her preference, but better to rule out hearing problem IME

Glad to know other DC's do it tho'
