Signing: Candy is signed by taking your index finger and touching it to the back of your jaw. Twist the finger back-and-forth. We remember this sign, because it looks a little like you are drilling your tooth – the consequence of eating too much candy.
Usage: Candy is a popular sign with toddlers, because it allows them to request something they like. Remember when baby requests candy, you don’t need to automatically give it to them. If you want to turn down the request, acknowledge the request but then firmly tell them that they cannot have candy now.
