Raising Bilingual Children

Raising Bilingual Children

More and more we are hearing of bilingual children - kids who speak 2 languages. This is largely due to immigration and parents of different cultures getting married or living together. For some families, it means the children can understand both languages but only speak one. For others, it means that the children both understand and speak 2 languages. If you are thinking of raising bilingual children, you need to know which definition you will follow…..and does it include reading and writing?
