How I Got My Bilingual Daughter to Love Reading in Spanish

Posted by: | 10 Comments

How do you enforce bedtime for a 6-year-old who’s begging you to let her read two more pages? You don’t. Or, at least, I don’t.

I feel like such a wimp, but I’ve been crying like a baby the last few days. They’re mostly tears of happiness, but they’re tinged with a bit of sadness too, for time come and gone.
