Frightened

Frightened is signed exactly like afraid or scared: it starts with your open hands (or closed fists) by your sides, with the dominant hand around chest level and the non-dominant hand around stomach level. Then you bring your hands inward, in front of your body, palms facing inward and fingers spread in an open number 5 hand.

SIGN USAGE

Frightened is a useful sign for intermediate babies. It lets them communicate to you what events cause them concern. The things causing your baby distress can often be things we find innocuous, such as a loud blender. And once you know that something is causing your baby concern, it is usually easy to either avoid it or to help your baby overcome their fear. Often just naming the emotion does a lot to reduce their anxiety.
