Baby Sign Language

One of the more frustrating things for parents of babies and toddlers is trying to understand what it is they want. The older they get, the more frustrated they also become if you aren't able to understand them.

One thing that has helped many parents is teaching their babies and toddlers basic sign language. A simple way to start is with Baby Sign Language's free "Top 10 Starter Signs". Each sign is demonstrated in a short video and shown with a sketch. Once you and your child have mastered those, you can move onto their entire dictionary of words!
