As a parent of a bilingual child, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard the expression, “Bilingualism is a superpower!”
Every single day we need to remind our children that bilingualism is a superpower. Why? As a parent, telling your children that their ability to speak more than one language is very powerful is nothing short of empowering. As a result, their confidence in speaking their second language grows even when they are hesitant to do so.
When my son was younger, he refused to speak Spanish. That had to change! I had to get him excited about learning Spanish! I was like a “broken record” when I constantly emphasized to my son that knowing two languages, Spanish and English, was a superpower. It wasn’t until my son was older that he realized the value of being bilingual.
In my most recent published book, Coco la Cotorra Puertorriqueña children will learn through a very special parrot that being able to communicate with humans and other parrots is a superpower. I have found that teenagers like my son have enjoyed reading about Coco even though this book is designed for children ages 6 – 12 years old.
Below are the top bilingual superpowers that you can share with your child:
- You’ll get smarter!
- You’ll have more brainpower!
- You’ll have the ability to communicate with more people!
- You’ll be more focused!
- You’ll have strong thinking skills.
- You’ll understand other cultures more easily.
