Talk to Me, Baby!

A Reuters story about the new trend of parents teaching sign language to their hearing infants:

“It is about empowering children to communicate. They can communicate with you at an early age and not be frustrated,” according to a teacher at a sign-language class for babies in Los Angeles.

Maybe, although others chalk it up to “over-achieving parent syndrome.” But just think: If they could teach those toddlers to scream and wail in ASL, long plane flights would be that much more pleasant.
