Bilingual Parenting

A new year brings with it new opportunities to define resolutions or goals.  As a mom, it is important to me that my goals also include my child and family.  As a Latina mom raising a bilingual, multicultural child, it is important to me that I continue on my bilingual journey, having goals, but not stressing out about specifics.  You want your bilingual journey as a family to be natural and as stress free as possible.  Here are my goals for the new year that you, as a bilingual or multicultural parent, may relate to or may inspire you:
I grew up speaking Spanish at home and English at school.  My parents spoke only Spanish with us, even though my father was bilingual.  My siblings and I spoke English every opportunity we got, much to our parents displeasure.  We hated speaking Spanish.  To us it was simply a way of communicating with our family.  It wasn't until years later that I truly appreciated the effort my parents put forth making sure we were able to speak, read, and write Español.

Bilingual Books & Toys

If you want to raise a bilingual Spanish child, que hable Español, one of the best ways that you can do this is by making sure that you make it FUN!  Children learn through play and getting them engaged, excited, and looking forward to playing with toys that enhance their language learning skills will make your job as a parent much easier when it comes to raising bilingual children.  Luckily,  I have a list of bilingual toys that your children and your family will enjoy in your bilingual parenting journey.
