Signing With Babies And Children: 5 Minutes Peace

5 Minutes Peace

Sometimes I am grateful for still having sign language in my family.

Even though my children are not fluent in ASL, they started signing at 6 1/2 months and are still able to use basic sentences and have a fairly large vocabulary. So I have decided to implement a new form of discipline in my home… with two boys, almost 11 and 9 yrs old, there’s a lot of excitement and activity.

When I need 5 minutes peace, I just begin signing to my kids instead of raising my voice. Most of the time, it quiets them down like when a teacher begins to whisper. And it encourages them to sign to each other as well.
