A STRANGE FAMILY
A newspaper had a story of one family. The father is
deaf but does not use sign language.
The daughter is hearing, and uses SEE as the sign
language to communicate with the deaf brother.
The father encouraged the daughter to learn SEE but
refuses to learn sign language himself.
The mother is hearing and communicates orally with
everyone in the family.
Is the family strange? Yes!
