Show your child how to tell you they’re feeling hungry by touching their hand to their mouth or rubbing their belly. If you do this over and over and then give them food while saying the word “hungry” they will pick up the symbol and learn to talk to you with their hands.

Children can express themselves with their hands (for example, by pointing) long before they can use words. Helping them learn to use “Hand Talk” will help them learn to communicate with words in the future.
