As a parent do you feel that teaching your child to use sign as a means to communicate is a smart parenting idea or do you feel the opposite about this topic. There is much controversy on whether baby signing benefits children or not, i'm interested to hear your view points. I have been teaching my children how to sign since they were born and feel that it has done wonders for me. How do feel about it? Signing is my passion so I am interested to hear what other parents think about it.
