Ever stare at a baby and think, “I wonder what my child really thinks about me…”?
Normally you’d have to wait until they are around 3 years old to carry out such analytical and introspective conversations with your baby. However, according to some people babies can communicate long before they develop the ability to talk.
Cammie Yick, owner of Sunshine Signing, teaches babies 6 to 36 months old American sign language for instance.
According to Cammie Yick, research shows signing can help reduce tantrums and frustration, increase bonding with parents/caregivers, and have enhanced speaking, spelling and reading skills. At Sunshine Signing, Cammie teaches vocabulary for such concepts as: eating, pets, family and more!
Her next class begins Wednesday, February 13, 2013, 11:15 am. If you happen to be in Florida at that time and you’re tired of staring at your child as merely a reflection of your own mortality, then perhaps Sunshine Signing is the perfect solution.
Does little Tommy like your recipe for strained carrots your mother passed on to you? Or does he secretly think they’re gross, just like you did as a child but didn’t have the heart to tell her. Does Tommy resent you for putting him in Time-Out the other week? Does he prefer a different parenting style? What are Tommy’s thoughts on raising the debt ceiling limit?
Now you can find out! Just don’t forget to learn sign language yourself, otherwise this whole concept is just an exercise in futility.
