Here’s my favorite from last time:

Creative Kids Culture Blog Hop #47-

One of the benefits that comes with being a multicultural family from different backgrounds is that it’s easier to teach children different languages. In my household, for example, I speak to my children in English while my husband speaks to them in Korean.

So naturally, this guest post on Bicultural Mama’s website written by Llacey Simmons from 21st Century caught my attention. I clicked in and discovered her moving story.

Though she and her husband are from different races (she is African-American while he is a red-headed White American), they grew up speaking one language. And so it came as a surprise to her husband (and nonsense in the beginning) that she would want their son to learn a second language.

So what does she do? She does her best to convince him again and again that it’s not as pointless as he thinks it is. I don’t want to spoil the rest of the story which she tells very beautifully. I highly recommend visiting her story and reading how she convinced her husband to agree with teaching their children a second language (Chinese, in fact!), her journey and path in helping him learn this language and that proud “motherhood moment” she felt when she realized it wasn’t all for naught, after all.

I love the post. Visit her story and be moved as well! 🙂

Happy reading, everyone!

Thank you for linking-up, and we can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!
