92% of parents with Deaf children NEVER learn to sign. To me, this is horrible. If a person loves their child they should want to communicate with that child!
I learned ASL at the age of fifty five and had no Deaf children. Now I am 69, have a Deaf daughter in law and have lost much hearing. It is a great benefit to me now.
But learning ASL should also include learning the culture, too. AND learn ASL, not SEE - SEE is a code, not a real language and does not clearly communicate to the Deaf.
