My husband’s family is from Hong Kong and it’s a big part of who they are. My husband picked up a little bit of Chinese growing up but mostly had an “All-American” upbringing. Now that we have kids, it’s brought to light the importance of showing our kids pieces of their heritage so they can keep in touch with their roots.
Our toddler has been going to Chinese school for awhile. It’s been really helpful since neither my husband nor I really speak Chinese (and our toddler just laughs when we try.) Not only do we like that he’s connecting with Chinese culture, but we also hope that it will help him later in life. The hard part for us is supplementing his Chinese at home. It’s been difficult to find products that encourage us to talk about China.
