Hard

Hard is signed exactly like difficult: bump your two fists together a couple of times, one on top of the other, while forming a double letter X sign on each hand (or a crooked letter V sign, however you want to call it).

SIGN USAGE

Teach your baby or toddler the hard sign when you can see that they are struggling with a particular activity, chore, or food item. However, don't stop there. Encourage them to keep trying, with a reassuring tone and a smile. Be sure to also assist them in the given task, and encourage them to mirror you (provided it is really a task or activity suited to their developmental stage: verbally, mentally, and physically).

Flash Card

Teach your child this sign to acknowledge that you see something is hard for them to do. Then patiently encourage them to mirror you and practice until it becomes easier and more pleasant. Remember to congratulate them, too, for their effort!
