Signing With Babies And Children: HELP!!!

HELP!!!

if there was a sign i could tell everyone to teach their child...it would be "help!" this sign has been absolutely invaluable to our family! my son, now 16 months, has been signing his approximation of "help" for months now, and it has saved us from meltdowns, confusion, and frustration!

not only has it saved us from things...but it has provided us with a sort of trust...leo asks for help, and i know he's in need of help. what also comes of this, is that he asks for help when he's ready. i'm not jumping in on his own exploration and development. and he doesn't have to get upset when he is ready...he simply asks.

here he is, at 15 months, asking for help with opening a banana (after signing banana, too :) )

This is a beautiful video, thanks for sharing. I agree that HELP is such an important sign to learn early on. It was very "helpful" in my family. :)

Heather, how wonderful! I LOVE this video! HELP is a concept that all babies need to communicate their needs. I wish all babies could be so blessed to have a mommy like you!
thank you for sharing!
