Name: Profession: Title: Date: Analyses of Mother Father Deaf (Paul Preston) Abstract It is estimated that around 90 percent of severely-profound deaf parents’ children are able to hear normally. In this magnificent family systems these hearing children are faced with two different cultures which differ in the processes of linguistic system and social interactions. These include the hearing community with their peer friends where they communicate with each other normally. And the deaf community that belongs to their deaf parents in this setting they are required to be familiarized with sign language for communication and comprehension purposes. Thus these book primarily focuses on the culture identification and association of these hearing children who have deaf parents. These is a society where these lives of hearing children assimilate the dilemma of being around a deaf culture and yet their functioning is of hearing nature. The information found in this book informants who link the deaf and hearing world. These children of deaf parents seem to inherit two views about the definition of deafness. From these books perspective the hearing children view deafness as a way that leads to their stigmatization and judgement. While their deaf parents see deafness as normality and as an identified community. But all the people in the world should know that the separation of these two worlds is created by people themselves.
