In some cases this is true, due to ageing an adults ears may be a little damaged while the child's ears are still growing and new. This case has been proven with the high pitched mobile ringtone that only children / teens can hear. good 4 class :P

Yeah, and I believe that a bunch of kids (I don't know what age...) were causing trouble at this store, so the clerk used the ringtone to drive the kids away.
yes, because due to how old people are their hearing might not be as same as children because they are much older and their ears have fully grown while children's are still new and growing
