"I know more than you think I know"

Parents

It's true why wait to communicate!

For babies’ crying has always been part of the communication process.

For parents it alerts them that something is wrong. Until recently, parents often have to play the ‘guessing game’ not knowing exactly what was wrong as their babies are unable to talk.

This provides babies with the ability to communicate their wants, and needs at a very early age, long before they can actually say the words. This is widely known today as ‘Baby Signing.’
