Publisher Comments:

The Essential Parenting Guide- NOW COMPLETELY UPDATED AND EXPANDED! In 1982, child development experts Linda Acredolo, Ph.D., and Susan Goodwyn, Ph.D., discovered that babies can communicate with simple signs-even before they're able to talk. The result: Baby Signs, the groundbreaking technique that has changed parenting forever.

Now, with the widespread popularity of signing with hearing babies and new and exciting research findings to report, the authors have completely revised and expanded Baby Signs to create this indispensable new edition. Featuring an American Sign Language approach, as well as a set of “baby-friendly” alternatives, this comprehensive new program offers all the information any parent needs to join the hundreds of thousands of families around the world who are using Baby Signs to help their children communicate their “joys and fears without tears.” (Newsweek)

Inside you will find . . .

     
  • An expanded dictionary with easy-to-follow photos of 150 ASL signs along with a set of 35 “baby-friendly” alternatives  
  • New research showing the benefits of Baby Signs for children's emotional development, for the parent-child relationship, and for reducing frustration and aggression in childcare settings  
  • Information to help parents use the magic of Baby Signs to meet the challenges of potty training (as seen on CBS's The Doctors)  
  • Real-life stories of parents achieving both stunning and heartwarming communication breakthroughs with their children

With the widespread popularity of signing with hearing babies and new and exciting research findings to report, the authors have completely revised and expanded "Baby Signs" to create this indispensable new edition.

Synopsis:

The proven and original program for communicatingwith your babyfeaturing American Sign Language-compatible signs

If you have struggled unsuccessfully to decode your baby's grunts and grabs, resulting in tearful frustration for both you and your child, there is Baby Signs. Based on a method first developed by Drs. Linda Acredolo and Susan Goodwyn in 1982 and on nearly 30 years of research, this classic bestseller shows you how to encourage your babys use of nonverbal gestures to enhance communication.

Simple hand movements signify objects, events, and needs, so your infant can enjoy interactions with you that otherwise would have been impossible until he or she could talk. Not only does the authors method help you and baby bond, but research shows that it can make learning to talk easier, reduce tears and frustration, boost self-esteem and confidence, and stimulate intellectual development.
