Raising a Bilingual Child in the US

Raising a child nowadays in the US with a set of parents both fluent in Spanish and English can be quiet a challenge. Just ask me. You want your child to learn the most and the best, so you try to repeat everything you teach him twice (in both languages) and let me tell you this can be exhausting and overwhelming.

Reading an article at babycenter.com about how your child learns to speak I came across a highlighted sentence that said that bilingual children split the amounts of words they know between the two languages. Ahh what a relief I felt to know that we are in a good path raising our little one teaching him two idioms.

It is so interesting to me that Spanglish it is not only a street language or the mix of our languages but a reflection of how new generations with Hispanic ancestry grow in the US.
