I am Puerto Rican and my husband is an American of Dominican ascent. We would really like to teach our 14 month old daughter Spanish fluently; however; we are concerned that 1. It will confuse her or delay her at school/with making friends 2. That it would delay her speech development.
Our questions are:
1.Should each of us just speak one language to her? i.e. Myself always in Spanish and my husband in English.
2. , when and how should we start with reading/writing in each language?
3. How do you manage interactions at the playground, school, etc amongst kids that do not speak the same language as your kids?
