While Children Sleep -------  LETTERS
Althea is a young mother whose first-born, Hannah, was born prematurely with hearing impairment, presumably due to exposure to the rubella virus during her third or fourth month of pregnancy.  Hannah wears a hearing aid, has been extensively tested because of her developmental delay, goes to a regular school where she is in the fourth grade (about 3 or four age levels less than a child of the same age) and has been under the supervision of a neuropsychologist and myself these many years.
Althea writes:
i visited your website the other day....i remember what i learned during one of the conferences i attended in church -- that man has spirit, soul and body.  it's the spirit that doesn't sleep.  that's why when we talk to persons who are asleep it's the spirit who listens. i guess i don't need anymore to put on hannah's hearing aid. you think there's hearing impairment of spirits?....i don't know......

well, i tried it on hannah that night....i told her that inspite of her hearing impairment she is still atchee (chinese for big sister) to robbie and shobe (younger sister)....and so on....guess what?  the following day she voluntereed to give robbie and shobe a bath and she was the one who dressed and tucked shobe in bed........

(So I asked Althea whether Hannah usually does this.)


hannah sometimes volunteers to do things but usually more on household chores and overseeing something.

she didn't wear any hearing aid when i talked to her while (she was) asleep.

................I read it all, and yes, I believe that  it works!  .Although my kids are not extremely in need of that kind of therapy, I constantly talk to Kian (he is almost four) in the early morning hours, before he wakes up,  and tell him that we love him very much, etc........I feel that he is a very loving child and that he already assumes responsibility for his sisters. He constantly watches over them and has a bond with them.........
