Another "New" good reason for teaching your toddler sign!
After a discussion with  some friends we realized that even if you intend to teach your child a second language, signing is a valuable resource to have. Now you have a hand picture to reinforce the two languages together!

Let's say mom is English and dad is French....
If mom teaches the sign for apple and says "Mommy says apple" sign apple "Papa dit pomme! " while still signing apple.

Learning sign as you teach two languages means that if the child has a moment of confusion or misunderstands a word, they can still get the meaning across with their sign and you can correct them!

A childs mind is so open to information, and languages come so easy to toddlers!
