    How do you sign stop and bad

    ADMIN – Hi Irene,

    Stop is signed by placing your dominant hand with the palm towards the person you are addressing. Like the policeman stopping traffic. Bad is signed by placing the fingers of your right hand against your lips. Move your hand down and away. End with your palm facing downward.
