A tear is indicative of sadness, fear, or physical pain, so teach this sign to your baby when he or she is crying, or when someone nearby is sad or hurt. The sign should also introduce your baby to empathy, so if there is something you can do to help the person who is in tears, that is a good opportunity to exercise charity.
Try to use this sign to signal sadness or pain to your baby, then proceed to address the source of that feeling when possible.
