Episode #11: Speaking the Same Language with Lee Ann Steyns
We often wish our babies would simply tell us what they want, or that we could decipher their cries and babble. What if they are trying to communicate with us and there was a better way for us to understand each other? Lee Ann Steyns is the owner of Signing Babies, a baby sign language education business which was born out of a need to help her two young children who were both colicky, fussy babies. Lee Ann has been teaching her own baby sign language classes to other parents in the community for nearly 18 years. As both a mom and educator, she's created a great balance of playful, light-hearted classes with an organized curriculum to keep things easy to learn for both parents and babies. In this episode, of course we talk a lot about baby sign language and how Lee Ann teaches, but you’ll also hear about Lee Ann’s experience in starting and growing a business over the course of 18 years while raising two kids.
