All mamas have had this experience: you know your little one wants something, but you have no idea what. The result? Frustration on both sides, and maybe even tears and temper tantrums. There is a solution, though. Vancouver baby sign language classes can help you communicate with your little ones before they can speak. Learning to form words is hard, so using hands is easier. And in our book, anything that makes life with a baby or toddler a little easier is a good thing.
One thing that parents worry about is that babies who sign will be late speakers. Research shows that this is not the case. Babies who sign actually develop their language skills more quickly, and have larger vocabularies as toddlers. Plus, if you join Vancouver baby sign language classes you’ll get out of the house, socialize with other mamas and maybe make some new friends. What have you got to lose? Here’s a brief sampling of classes that you might want to check out.
