“I’d like a Spanish babysitter for my kids, but I don’t know if they’ll accept it. What can I do?”. I get this question almost every day, and this is the most honest way I can answer: if you don’t make a big deal of it, your children won’t care. For children, a language is not just a language, it’s an intrinsic trait of somebody’s personality, like blond hair, green eyes, or dark skin. They won’t question the language, they’ll connect with the person, so as long as the babysitter can get to their heart, their mind won’t care if they don’t understand her. Ps.
