To me it comes naturally to speak to my baby in my mother tongue, and my partner in his first language. Some people choose not to teach their kids their native language.
I think it’s necessary to encourage your mother tongue in your household, because it gives your child a sense of belonging if she can speak her mother tongue.
She will understand and be connected to her roots better.
How important do you think it is, to teach your child her mother tongue?
