Language barriers between families

Can enforcing the minority language build a barrier between a child and a parent?

On this episode of Bilingual Avenue, I answer a question from a mother who feels that a language barrier is forming between her and her daughter.  She speaks the minority language with her daughter and she worries that her 3 year old’s lack of fluency is creating a distance between them.  I share my thoughts on how at the end of the day what our children really need is parenting.  Language is just one of the many aspects of parenting.
