What's the Sign for "Wouldn't Hurt... Might Even Help" ?

Ever since Jack was a baby, he's loved watching television: Baby Einstein, Sesame Steet, Thomas the Tank Engine and sports of any kind. For her first two years, Sophie could take tv or leave it -- but no more! Her new love and daily request: Signing Time. *There's singing time and dancing time and laughing time and playing time, and now it is our favorite time -- Signing Time!*

I've been thinking a lot lately about what society is going to look like when my kids are young adults. Funny, how American parents of our generation (and socio-economic demographic? maybe) are sooooo into providing broad-exposure for our kids in terms of educational experiences during their early years. Wouldn't it be nice if we extended that to include varied cultural experiences (leading up to and including the teen years) as well?
