When And What Age Can I Teach My Baby A New Language?

We wanted to ask, at what age was it necessary to start teaching our baby’s a new language!

Some say” start when they are 2 years or 3 years old, then I start to think? is that to late. Now is the time, when they are just baby’s, yes I mean it as soon as you come home from the deliveryroom at the hospital, you think that oh well there just newborns they wont remember nothing, but they are very smart little newborns and love recording everything they hear or see! that is why we need to be on our best behavior as well.

Here are some good tips to help out in this language change for you and dad.

  • Start now. Two- and 3-year-olds are not only increasing their vocabularies, they’re starting to recognize the speech patterns they’ve been hearing since birth. The earlier you introduce a second language, the easier it will be for your child to pick up its unique sounds. The ability to hear different phonetic pronunciations is sharpest before age 3, and we lose the capacity to hear and produce certain sounds if we aren’t exposed to them early on, according to François Thibaut, director of the Language Workshop for Children, in New York City. So just hearing a television show, listening to music, or learning a few words in a second language will give your child essential tools for appreciating it now and learning to speak it later.
  • Create a casual learning environment. The best way for a child to learn to understand a new language is for him to hear people speaking it fluently, says Thibaut. If he’s exposed to conversations, he’ll begin to pick up the sounds and the natural accent. Choose a language that is spoken in your neighborhood, on a television show your child can watch regularly, or one that is offered in classes or playgroups in your area. “If you have a bilingual babysitter, encourage her to speak her native language to your child exclusively,” says Rhodes. Two- and 3-year-olds love to mimic what they hear, and soon they’ll begin to understand the meanings of short words and phrases.
  • Teach a word at a time. If you don’t want to do formal lessons, you can introduce bilingual basics by pointing out to your child that objects can have two names — one in each language. “When my 2-year-old son, Constantinos, sees a spider, he’ll say ‘spider’ to me in English and then say it in Greek to my husband,” says Cassandra Attard, of Nottingham, New Hampshire. “He knows they mean the same thing.” As your child learns new words, tell him what they’re called in a second language too.
  • Have reasonable expectations. Of course, a child won’t learn to speak another language fluently from hearing words, watching videos, or singing songs. But simply being exposed to a language will help her understand phrases when she hears them. So even though you probably won’t be having a French conversation with your child very soon, if you say “bonne nuit” every night at bedtime, she’ll figure out what you mean.

To Be Vegan Or Not To Be:And The Benefits You Reap…

Why should or shouldn’t you be vegan 

Well I had to ask why would I become a vegan? and what would be the wonderful benefits from this change. First off I had to ask myself do I believe in killing animals for food, well (Duh) that’s what they were put on this earth for, but there are some I would not touch due to a kosher thingy,and some animals I believe that they are here to help out in our wonderful enviornment. I due need to add that I respect the thoughts and ideas of others when it comes to the vegan idea and how they see the whole perspective as well.

What are some wonderful reasons for turning from a McRib lover to a Tofurkey eater? well my reasons were to get back into shape lose weight and also get healthy again, others who turn into a vegan that I have read about always quote that they have watched some kind of torture video on animals and how they just cant take the cruelty and just to try and save one animal they will be vegans and also get healthy at the same time..

Tell me please the great benefits that you and I can reap from making this big change.

  2. Beauty and healthy skin – also prevent premature aging. The content of fiber and lycopene in fruits and vegetables can prevent wrinkles. It also serves as an antioxidant lycopene that reduces the potential for skin damage caused by free radicals.
  3. Reduce excess weight can lead to some other illnesses such as heart attack or high blood pressure.
  4. Intake of nutrients and fiber your body receives adequate amounts equal to the number of calories produced meat products. In addition to nutritional balance, healthy vegetarian food is also the process of digestion in the body because of the fiber from vegetables and fruits.
  5. It helps the body’s metabolic processes and makes the working of the intestines and the stomach is not too heavy in doing the processing.
  6. Addendum: more efficient because the prices of plant foods are usually cheaper than animal foods / meats.
  7. Make us healthy physically and mentally as well as prolong our lives as animal foods such like meat generally can narrow blood vessels so that the nutrients and oxygen are uninterrupted, which will consequently, lower the immune system.
  8. Menopausal women who would not be tortured because soybean mealapples, cherries, dates, olives, etc. are rich in natural phytoestrogens.
  9. Plant foods help cure chronic and dangerous diseases like cancer and heart disease. In addition, we can avoid digestive ailments such as constipation, hemorrhoids, colon cancer, etc..
