Hi, When i did this in class i was told within a sentence you would more than likely be saying it in a structure i.e. "I have 3 children" so you'd indicate with an actual number how many children you have when signing the phrase. If you said simply "I have children" then the individual is going to ask you how many, prompting you to indicate a number thus i dont think the amount of times you move your hand across while signing the word children makes any difference as the person you are signing to may not see the exact number of times you do it.

    • Hi! I’m Emily, I was a CoDa (child of deaf adult) between ages of 5 and 12 as we used BSL at home to communicate with my stepdad who was deaf.    I recently watched a show with a deaf actress in who used ASL and it reminded me that I know quite a lot of basic BSL but I want to brush up on my skills so I can effectively communicate with any BSL users I come across! It’s also a fun hobby ☺️
