The cruelest thing that can happen to a kid is if he is born with hearing impairment. It can be a difficult place for a kid to be in. Hearing no sound and unable to express themselves by words is painful and parents who have such kids are always looking for answers to take better care of their kids. These kids need special attention. There are special schools and institutions to take care of such kids but it is also important that the parents play a major part in normal upbringing of the kid.
The best thing that parents can do is learn sign language and therefore chalk out a means of communicating with their child. Hearing impairment can be solved by sign language. If you send your kid to some special institute he or she will be taught sign language there. Therefore it is better if you go along with your kid and learn sign language so that you have a mean of communicating with him too. You have to make your kid believe that you are same as him. Nowadays people with hearing problems are not treated like handicaps and can very well have a normal life in the society. You as a parent can make that happen.
