Sign of the Week: Please

Along with thank you, the sign for PLEASE is one of the first manners signs parents often teach their children. The sign, PLEASE, is also one of the first signs babies pair with other signs to make sign sentences like "more please" or "eat please." Start teaching your child this simple sign today.
Sometimes, as my children start to whine for something they want, I remind them to "ask nice."  I find that they use a different tone when they add the word please to the sentance.  It calms the "gimme, gimme, gimme" tantrum to something more sincere and humble.  I like that.
