Chapter 5 Thoughts and Comments
Hey everyone! This week we read and discussed chapter 5, I just wanted to share my thoughts about it. The chapter was all about family dynamics and interpersonal relationships and I thought that this was a very intriguing topic to read about. Hearing stories from all perspectives was great because there are so many assumptions made about what it would be like growing up and being deaf in a hearing family or hearing with parents who are deaf or siblings who are deaf or vise versa, but nobody knows what it actually feels like unless that is there experience. Reading responses from different perspectives opened my mind a lot and introduced new ideas to my mind about interpersonal relationships having a unique effect on each individual. What do you guys think?
