I'm trying to use signs to help Jonah understand emotions. Nothing too deep, I just want him to recognize when I am angry, sad, or happy, and I want him to be able to tell us when he is feeling a certain way.

Does your child have any signs for emotions? Will he/she tell you when they are sad or mad?

Click the blinkies!

Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!

not yet but we do sing "if your happy and you know it" with signs for the emotions. I am sure she will pick it up soon. I probably should also start using them more when we aren't singing....

She doesn't normally *tell* us how she's feeling, but she does wave her hands around almost like the sign for 'happy' when she's happy. And... she runs away and hits something (chair/couch/other furniture) when she's angry with us.... and she'll do that with a huge (but cute) scowl on her face, lol...

I'm working on teaching her to at least TRY to verbalize the feelings, so if she's angry then talk to her about how I understand that she is angry, but that's the way things have to be or whatever... or that I'm so glad she is in a happy mood... that sort of thing. She was just given a book of sign language today (which she LOVES), and it has a little chapter on signs for moods/feelings, so I might sit down and try to work on them a little more with her, since she likes the book so much.
