When we came to Canada, I was 15 and my wife was 10 y o (no no we were not married at the time)
We have two children, daughter nine and son two year old. My wife and I communicate in Spanish at home and use English in public. My daughter understand Spanish perfectly but, lately, she will not speak it if she can help it. I speak to her ONLY Spanish, I buy books, music and also download the same kids stories I loved as a kid. I try to make it fun for her. My wife tells me I try too hard.
My daughter lately pretends she does not understand Spanish.
