REMINDER #6 - Let's make sure we spend quality time with our children

This one is a reminder as much for me as much as it is for you. 😅

As parents, we are all busy. And when we want to raise multilingual children, it takes a lot of time. But this shouldn't be at the expense of SPENDING QUALITY time with our children.

This is why I wrote "The Parents' Guide to Raising Multi-literate Children" (Read the 1st chapter free: https://www.library4multilinguals.com/theparentsguide )

and why Ana Elisa Miranda and @UtesInternationalLounge wrote "The Toolbox for Multilingual Families".

[Both books available on Amazon]

We explain how we can all teach our children through play.

Reminder #4 - Let's focus on WHAT our children are telling us and not HOW they are talking.

Especially when we are the only source for our home language, we can feel like we MUST correct all the mistakes our children make.

But our corrections are not always well received by our children...

In our video called "How to 'correct' our children in a positive way - The Narrator's Game" @UtesInternationalLounge and I show you how and when we can effectively correct our children's mistake, and introduce you to the Narrator's Game as an example to do it.

Reminder #3 : To motivate children to speak in our home language, let's talk about/do what interest them.

REMINDER #2 : Let's make our languages fun

When we live in a country, we can benefit from repeated exposure to learn accurately a language.

This doesn't happen as much in our home languages. As a result, our children can carry on making the same mistakes for a long time. And this is COMPLETELY NORMAL.

So to help them with accuracy, we need to make things memorable. Making it FUN through GAMES is a excellent way to achieve that.

I will let you explore our video titled "Charades and Gestures in Multilingual Families" to see get a concrete example of how you can achieve that.

📣 Watch it on YouTube on our channel "ACTIVITIES FOR MULTILINGUAL FAMILIES"
