Drew Brees: Setting a Good Example for Parents

What a sweet picture: New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees lifting his one-year-old son, Baylen, in the air following the Saints’ win in the Super Bowl yesterday.

And it warmed my heart even more to see that Mom and Dad had decided Baylen would be wearing noise-reducing headphones for the occasion.

Consumer Reports’ Tobie Stanger has a great post about this, with lots of links to info on how to protect your hearing and your kids’ hearing.  (Full disclosure: I’m the social-media reporter for Consumer Reports.)

Check out the post, then talk with your own kids about the importance of protecting their hearing. And be sure to tell them that Drew Brees is one cool dad.

    He really does seem like a great guy, from all the interviews I’ve seen. And what a happy baby!

  3. Yup, this is great…my husband took our four-year-old car and truck freak to a monster truck show, but they BOTH wore the noise-cancelling headsets. Then we let some of our friends borrow them for the next day. They all had a blast, and didn’t damage their hearing in the process!!! :)
