Bilingualism in preadolescence


Any parent of a pre-teen or teen can relate to a situation that goes
like this: you ask your kid something with kindness, and a loud response
is instantly thrown back at you by your VERY annoyed kid. Obviously,
silly you, it was the wrong question. Still, I appreciated the layer of
humor that the bilingualism of my child added this time. She did too
when I showed her this drawing. We had a good laugh 🙂
