Signing Stories: Signing ‘Hurt’ and how it helped.
We love hearing your signing stories! We got this great response from a Mom who was working on the word HURT with her daughter, and how it helped let her know she was a little more sick than she thought! If you having a signing story to share, email it to us at rcdirector@MySmartHands.com and YOU could be featured!
We love signing with our daughter Ralee. She had about 15 signs by the time she turned one, with her first being at 7 months – the sign for milk! When Ralee started climbing and attempting to walk, she would fall down a lot, and we would work on the sigh for ‘hurt’ so she could tell us if she hurt herself. Or if I found her crying, I would ask her where she hurt, while showing her the sign! At around 14 months, Ralee had a cold. I went into her room when she was crying one night, and she was doing hurt by her throat. The next morning I booked her a doctors appointment and found out she had a throat infection! I would have had no idea had she not done that – I just thought it was a common cold! I can’t explain how much we appreciate signing with our daughter, and how much it has helped! Thank you so much for all your great video’s! Kim, Max and Ralee.
