In our first ever SpanglishBaby LIVE Google+ Hangout we discussed dual language immersion programs and it was a success. Now we’re ready for our second one! We hope you can join us tomorrow as we discuss another very popular topic for parents raising bilingual kids. For those of you who’ve never joined a Google+ Hangout, you should know that it’s just like hanging out with a bunch of friends, except that you’re not all in the same room.
WHAT: In our second Hangout we’ll be talking about the infamous “bilingual rebellion” stage. From why bilingual kids go through this to what you can do if your children refuse to speak Spanish (or their minority language), we’ll share anecdotes, tips and take questions from you.
WHEN: Our second Hangout will be Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 1 p.m. EST.
WHO: Joining Ana and I will be Jeannette Kaplun a recognized journalist, mom of two bilingual kids and founder of Hispana Global. She was also the founder of TodoBebe.com and a co-host of the Emmy-nominated Univision show, ¡Viva la Familia!
HOW: If you’d like to have your question related to raising bilingual and/or bicultural kids answered by ourselves or one of our experts, please fill out this form.
