Bilingual kids get confused learning two languages at once. It is impossible for children to learn a second language while trying to master their first.
There is also the possibility of a speech delay because of language confusion, and bilingual kids may not end up not talking at all.
Parents should speak one language to their child, and it should be the community language so that eventually when their kids go to school they won’t get confused.
Any of this sound familiar?
If you are raising a bilingual child, I am sure you have heard a few of these statements, either from friends, teachers, or even strangers. There is this huge misconception that bilingual kids get confused learning two languages at once. Many parents become scared off and some even consider dropping a language because of it . . .
