Communicating with your littlest ones (babies and/or toddlers) can be a challenge at times! Especially when they just don't have the words to SPEAK to you! I've faced this frustration from time to time with our children...but was thankfully introduced to a fabulous (and easy!) way to communicate with my babies around the time when our first child reached the age of 1 year. Now...that was almost 7 years ago, so I'm not any stranger to Baby Signing, though I've learned more with each of our 4 children. Right now I'm doing some baby signing with our youngest who is 1 year old. It's an amazing way to cut back on the crying, screaming and connect and communicate with her in a way that is both meaningful and useful.
I was recently introduced to a great e-Classroom called Adventures in Baby Signing. It is a six-week guided journey to get you started into the world of baby signing and communicating with your little ones. The program also includes lots of helpful tips, ideas and even printable posters. Each lesson is actually a video lesson so you can clearly see HOW the sign is done. I found that video lessons were far more helpful for us than just looking at a book or a link on the internet.
