When People Put Baby Signing Down

by Eleanor

"When people say that to me, if they have ever thrown their hands up when they are showing a child that they are all done, or even notice when a child asked to be picked up they put their hands up to be picked up.

I ask them if they ever learned to wave goodbye, or hello. Or have they ever had anyone point to where they needed to go. When they answer yes I ask them if they learned to speak, clearly they have so apparently signing didn't effect them.

Signing has been used for many years with children people just didn't realize they were actually doing sign. and didn't continue doing it."
